Brit Asia TV has announced the launch of its first ever Punjabi Film Awards in the UK.

The prestigious awards ceremony will take place at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham on 12th May 2018 to celebrate the Punjabi film industry.

Punjabi cinema has gone from strength to strength in the UK, regularly appearing in the Box office charts. Film fans can now expect to see the crème of the Punjabi Film industry descend on Birmingham for what promises to be the red-carpet, Punjabi showbiz event of the year.

Tony Shergill, CEO of BritAsia TV, said, “We are delighted to bring such a prestigious event to the city of Birmingham, at a time when the city is celebrating its diversity, after being announced as the host of the Commonwealth Games 2022.

It was important for a platform like BritAsia TV to showcase and celebrate the talent within the Punjabi film industry, and to deliver an event of the highest calibre. We look forward to welcoming the Punjabi film industry to the UK.”
