WHAT IS UFO?

Underground Film Observatory (UFO) is a south-Asian community-led film programme by STAR HOPPER – with a mission to exhibit, nurture, and make available films and moving image works, techniques, and experiments by south-Asian GSM, queer, trans, GNC, and women filmmakers and artists across the globe. ​


Let’s break it down:


It’s a subversive crossroads, a clandestine haven for the unruly where conversations unfold uncharted, unfiltered, uncensored, and unapologetic. Narrated and curated by a motley crew of queer, trans, and neurodivergent South-Asians, who like exploring the intersections of cinema and broader cultural dynamics.


We ask:


Is it truly inclusive?

Is it equitable?

What is the intent?

Does it courageously embrace?

Does it boldly defy?

If not, why, and what transformative shifts can we instigate?


A ceaseless exploration, celebration, and redefinition of the cinematic cosmos.
