DFW South Asian Film Festival

DFW South Asian Film Festival

Our Mission:

The Dallas/Fort Worth area is now home to its very own South Asian film festival. DFW SAFF is a four day festival taking place from February 8 to 11, 2018. We will showcase World, U.S. and Texas premieres of features, shorts and documentaries, all chosen to engage, educate and inspire audiences. We have chosen a wide range of films exploring issues that affect South Asians living and working in America, as well as our brothers and sisters back home.

Our Vision:

DFW SAFF exists to promote the perspectives and voices of the South Asian community by serving, organizing and advocating South Asian culture in the Greater Dallas Metroplex area through cinema.


The fourth annual DFW South Asian Film Festival will take place from February 8 to 11, 2018.

When the beloved "Uncle" of the immigrant community in Dubai announces his impending return to India, Babu, an overworked construction worker who can barely make ends meet, must find a way to send back to the homeland an expensive gift for his wife. An engrossing and poignant character study of a man in a foreign land who finds himself at a loss over the promise of a dream that appears unattainable, while the distance from his home seems to grow by the day.
