Tasveer South Asian Film Festival 2018
Oct 7, 2018 @ 2:00 am - 1:59 am
An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until Oct 7, 2018
The Tasveer South Asian Film Festival (TSAFF) is the largest South Asian film festival in the United States. Now in its 13th year, TSAFF 2018 is a 10-day festival of thought-provoking films & forums on South Asia and its diaspora, to engage viewers to dialogue openly on the issues of human rights and social/political/economic justice.
Our spotlight country this year is Pakistan and our theme is #KnowMe. With our hashtag/theme we are trying to encourage filmmakers and audiences to challenge narratives and assumptions about South Asia.
The festival aims to initiate a dialog that bridges ideas, individuals, and communities by creating a deeper understanding of self in relation to the society. We use films as a powerful tool in our attempt to harbor inclusion. Our objective is to give marginalized communities a voice, with our end goal being to broaden perspectives and reduce (if not remove) stereotypes to foster happier and healthier communities.
The festival takes place from September 28th – Oct 7th, 2018, over 10 days, in 5 cities (Seattle, Bellevue, Bothell, Redmond & Renton) with more than 60 films and 5000 festival attendees.
