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.

Raj is in love. He's about to embark on a sacred and beautiful journey with the love of his life. So what's the problem? His Punjabi mother. She's as stubborn as she is sweet. She's crazy in love...with her pind and she doesn't care who knows. Reluctantly Raj takes his mother to a traditional American counseling session and well... you tell us how their "Therapy" went!
