Presented by Tasveer 9th Seattle South Asian Film Festival in partnership with Washington Filmworks

RSVP on Facebook

Major studios are always searching for stories with a broad audience appeal. The Indian and South Asian diaspora in particular have been a source for inspiration and stories with global resonance. Slumdog Millionaire, Outsourced, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Million Dollar Arm and The Hundred-Foot Journey are a few examples of the investments made in South Asian narratives that have had huge success. What makes a story worthy of travel across borders? What is filmmaking and storytelling for international audiences all about? Join #SSAFF2014 for a fascinating discussion with filmmakers from around the world, moderated by Warren Etheredge (Host of The High Bar).
