Our story
In 2020, we were all faced with an unprecedented time during the Covid-19 pandemic. While many arts-based organizations and industries were badly impacted, seven South Asian film festivals based in the U.S. and Canada decided to unite to show solidarity.

CoSAFF is a first of its kind event that brings together seven well-established South Asian institutions from across North America. The virtual festival will feature free online film screenings along with Q&As with the creators. It will also include webinars focused on key industry topics, as well as other unique virtual events.

Participating festivals are:

Tasveer South Asian Film Festival (TSAFF), Seattle
Chicago South Asian Film Festival (CSAFF), Chicago
Washington DC South Asian Film Festival (DCSAFF), Washington DC
Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival (MISAFF), Toronto
Nepal America International Film Festival (NAIFF), Maryland
South Asian Film Festival of Montreal (SAFFM), Montreal
Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival (VISAFF), Vancouver
Our mission
To support and encourage the vibrant film and art community in South Asia and its diaspora.

Our vision
We envision a unified South Asian community of film festivals, filmmakers, actors, and artists coming together to share our common love for films and storytelling. We aim to engage and entertain the audience, start dialogues, educate our community, and represent, include all South Asian countries and their diasporas worldwide.
