South Asian Film Festival (SAFF Canada), the first of its kind, will take place June 13-17, 2012, in Vancouver, and in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada. The festival is unusual in Canada in that this will be a SAARC festival event, and every effort will be made to present work from all of the SAARC family of nations.
The program charted out for the debut South Asian Film Festival is as follows :
Screenings: Feature Films, Documentaries, Shorts
Master Classes, and Webinars
A SKYPE Master Class tie-up with our sister debuting festival in Ladakh, India.
A “Spirit of the Muse Award” for a leading South Asian film artist (or artists) who have inspired, encouraged and mentored young South Asian film artists.
A mid-festival highlight every year will be a program we are calling A Conversation With…which will feature a major South Asian film artist.
A TRIBUTE or Homage program
AND MUCH MORE……
