Event Details & Reservation

Film Southasia (FSA) is a biennial festival that was set up in 1997 with the goal of popularising the documentary so that it entertains, informs and changes lives. After each FSA festival, about a dozen films are selected to travel across the Subcontinent and the world as the Travelling Film Southasia (TFSA) package. This mobile campaign to promote and popularise Southasian documentaries stops at more than 50 international venues, and this year, will be hosted by T2F.

The TFSA are excited to announce the list of selected films for this year’s Film Southasia. Since the conception of Film Southasia, they have held a high standard for the film that they select, not only limited to technical skill but also through the stories that filmmakers have tried to portray. The selection this year showcases the diversity of stories across all Southasian countries and the TSFA hopes to keep this trend alive through the film screenings at the festival this year.
