Held at two locations over the course of 10 days, the Tasveer Seattle South Asian Film Festival showcases filmmakers whose work reflects issues facing the region. Culled from countries such as Sri Lanka and Pakistan, as well as border countries including Afghanistan, many of the movies are followed by discussions with their directors. In the past, these directors have included luminaries, such as Indian director Mira Nair, but also local artists making their debuts. Along with screenings and Q&A's, there will be filmmaker roundtables and community discussions that tackle subjects including the struggles minorities face living in the U.S.
