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
February 9, 10, 11: AMC Village on the Parkway 9

LILY PRASAD is graduating from her Orange County high school at the top of her class. And she has a plan, "The Lily Plan”. She will become a brain surgeon like her father. Her sweet, lost boyfriend KARIM will become a petroleumengineer. They’ll get married. Have kids. Live happily ever after. But the plan is thrown into confusion when KARIM becomes smitten by and runs off with RESHMA, the reining Miss India National beauty queen. Not happy about losing at anything, Lily decides that she herself must become the new Miss India National! So talents must be learnt, dresses must be stolen, lies must be told and the competition must be crushed! But LILY will discover you’re not always a winner when you win, and there maybe more to learn when you lose.

The film touches on many relevant themes but especially focuses on the concept of ambition and what it means to win in both the South Asian community and at large.  This is both a South Asian story, and an American story with universal appeal.
