Welcome to our 6th annual festival!

Join us for the Independent South Asian Film Festival (ISAFF), a celebration of the best independent films from the South Asian diaspora. This year's festival runs from October 2nd through October 4th, and represents a diverse selection of films from many genres.

** NOTE: There have been many schedule changes. Please confirm all times on our calendar before making plans.

The festival is organized by Tasveer, a grassroots, community-based organization that is committed to bringing independent progressive films from South Asia and the South Asian Diaspora to the Pacific Northwest.

Our opening night film is The Damned Rain (Gabricha Paus), a hauntingly beautiful tale about farmer suicides in India. Our closing night film is The Living Ghost, the story of a tribal community whose lives are disrupted by modernization. Other highlights include: I Can't Think Straight, an edgy comedy starring Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth, and Supermen of Malegaon, a hilarious documentary capturing a small-town filmmaker who overcomes a myriad of unseen challenges.
