South Asian Documentary Film Festival 2021

YCAR is pleased to support the South Asian Film Festival 2021—“Stories of, by and from South Asia”. The Festival will run from 12 March to 23 July 2021.

This is a FREE, virtual Film Festival showcasing 15 South Asian documentaries from India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Myanmar! The festival is aimed at amplifying South Asian culture and activism to create meaningful dialogues and intercultural awareness. 

This unique festival is inviting audiences all over the world to register and access these films free of cost. 

We see these films as important resources for students, researchers, faculties and general film enthusiasts to learn more about South Asia and its diaspora.
