The South Asian International Film Festival



Wed 12.1 – Sun 12.5
From Flavorpill:
“Day one of this inaugural film fest kicks off with a gala showing of Bride and Prejudice from director Gurinder “Bend It Like Beckham” Chadha. Screening 14 films from pan-South Asian directors spanning India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal, as well as Diaspora productions from the US, UK, and Iran, Colors in Fusion balances the saccharine high of big-budget Bollywood beats with sobering, sociopolitical dramas (Black Friday, The Clay Birds) and a concurrent documentary festival, Films for Freedom, at the Rubin Museum of Art. More than just great reels, SAIFF also wants to put the “festive” back in festival with five nights of after parties: ready yourself for booty-shaking bhangra.”
