downloadWe’re so pleased to announce that VISAFF has been nominated and shortlisted for British Columbia Multicultural Awards (previously known as the Provincial Nesika Awards).

The Awards recognize individuals, organizations and businesses whose exceptional work helps bring our diverse cultures together.

Winners will be announced on November 20, during B.C.’s Multicultural Week, just days before our VISAFF 2015 – Bollywood and beyond gets underway.

VISAFF’s intent is bridging the gap between South Asian talent and mainstream audiences. This year’s theme: Bollywood & Beyond will celebrate stories chosen to engage, educate and inspire audiences by promoting free expression, cross-cultural interactions and understanding, and combating intolerance and stereotypes. Specifically it promotes diverse stories of South Asians through films from Vancouver and the global South Asian Diaspora.

The team at VISAFF have worked tirelessly. Immense thank you to our board of directors and our sponsors – past and present, as well as everyone who has supported the festival with open arms ever since it was first conceived.
