4th Independent South Asian Film Festival
October 3rd – 7th, 2007
In our 4th year of creating a 5-day festival of independent South Asian films for Seattle, Tasveer reaffirms its commitment to strengthening community roots with initiatives for South Asians in Seattle and throughout the South Asian diaspora. Join us as we look at the present state of women’s rights in Afghanistan, interfaith dialogue in Pakistan, a hijra of India celebrating her life, a bioscopewallah’s sojourn in India, a man’s solitary journey to a remote Tibet summit, and many other thought-provoking and inspiring stories. We are excited to open the festival with famed Pakistani physician, musician, filmmaker and peace activist, Salman Ahmed. Plus we are thrilled to close our program with the exceptional film, 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama.
Befitting our theme of “strengthening community roots”, this year’s festival sponsor is Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods — we are grateful for their generous support! This year all ISAFF programs are FREE to the public, but voluntary donations are welcome.
