3rd iís 11th ANNUAL SF INTERNATIONAL SOUTH ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL
November 6-10, San Francisco

From art-house classics to documentary films, and innovative and experimental visions to next-level Bollywood: 3rd i Films is committed to promoting diverse images of South Asians through independent film.

Our 2013 festival showcases over 20 films from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Canada and USA. This year, we celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema! We honor the strides made by women behind the
lens, and examine gender revolutions across South Asia and the Diaspora. We shine a spotlight on stories from Pakistan, on the voices of South Asian youth and the Tamil Diaspora.
