We're chatting to the three Coventry locals who helped curate the UK Asian Film Festival.

This week, we’re hosting the UK Asian Film Festival for the first time ever, as part of our City of Culture programme of events.

Back in March, UKAFF chose three Coventry locals to help curate the line-up of films featured in this year’s festival. Amisha Patel, Jessica Goodwin and Shabana Sarguro attended two days of online workshops, led by Dr Ashvin Immanuel Devasundaram (Queen Mary University of London) and Dr Monia Acciari (Demontfort University). They were taught valuable tools in curational excellence which they employed when selecting the Belgrade’s opening film.

We recently chatted to the curators to find out how they found the experience.
