Some films to focus on art

The screenings will be in several different languages but all will be subtitled in English and French which are Canada’s two official languages. One section will be devoted to films focussing on art including films featuring dancers, musicians, writers and artists.

Screenings will be followed by audience discussions led by panelists and there will be presentations by filmmakers, some travelling from South Asia and other parts of the world. Awards will be handed out to the best short and feature length films.

This is the ninth edition of the South Asian Film Festival of Montreal presented by the Kabir Centre for Arts & Culture.
