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.

The inhabitants of an Indian mountain village are overjoyed when one of their own ships off to America (“Umrika”) to make his fortune. But when the success story’s younger brother discovers things aren’t quite as they seem, he journeys to uncover the truth. Starring Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma and The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Tony Revolori, Umrika is a beguiling, funny tale about the power of the American dream.
