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 three day festival taking place from March 3 to 5, 2017. 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.

Opening night film & after party (February 8): TBD

When an Indian family moves to America in 1979 with the hope of living the American Dream, their 10-year-old son, Smith, falls head-over-heels for the girl next door. With an American Dream of his own, Smith strives to become a “good ol’ boy,” propelling him and his family further away from their traditional ideals than ever before.

GROWING UP SMITH is a heartfelt coming-of-age comedy about an irrepressibly likeable 10-year-old boy from India who may possibly lose it all—including the love of his life—when his obsession for living the American Dream unexpectedly takes a wrong turn.
