The Tasveer Film Fund (TFF), in its 3rd year, aims to empower South Asian filmmakers to bring their scripts to life with monetary grants, as well as year-long support with resources and mentorship access. It is funded by Tasveer and has partial support from Netflix.
We are excited to announce that Tasveer is more than doubling its Tasveer Film Fund grant in 2022, from $15,000 to $50,000. With support from Netflix, TFF will once again offer awards for US-based filmmakers, which includes increased grants in the Short Narrative, LGBTQIA+ Short, and Documentary categories.
New in 2022, Tasveer is presenting a feature film narrative track ($15,000), open to South Asian filmmakers from all over the world.
A live pitching session will be organized to determine the award winners in each category. The top 3 projects will be shortlisted from each category to pitch their short film, LGBTQ+ films, or their documentary treatment.
Online pitch dates: Tuesday, October 18th & Wednesday, October 19th.
