South-Asian Queer Short Film Festival
September 7th, 2019 in Fremont, CA
The Pride Month might be over but the celebration continues. For the first time in Bay Area, Bay Area South Asian Film Festival presents the inaugural South-Asian Queer Short Film Festival.
With a fantastic line-up of LGBTQ+ short films from South Asia & South Asian filmmakers, the festival aims to provide a powerful way of rallying public opinion towards equality and dignity for the South Asian LGBT community living in San Francisco Bay Area.
Bay Area South Asian Films Festival (BASAFF) is a platform that creates possibilities for South Asian storytelling for the larger American diaspora. We foray into South Asian films and culture through our extensive network of lovers of South Asian cinema.
San Francisco Bay Area metropolitan region is arguably the home of the nation's largest and most affluent South Asian and Indian community. The goal of BASAFF is to leverage the rich cultural diversity and help Indian and South Asian films to grow their market in this part of the world. We also realize that there is a large untapped non-diaspora American audience for Indian films. As Indian movies evolve in technical excellence, this audience becomes a bigger prospect for our cinema. We believe that with the advancement in technology and globalization, the dream of storytelling through movies is no longer a distant one. With the proper platform and planning, your story truly has the potential to become a global story. This is where BASAFF wants to create a mark by providing a global platform where the spirit of movies is celebrated.
