“To inspire social change through thought-provoking South Asian films, art, and storytelling”


Tasveer is excited to present the 3rd year of the Tasveer Film Fund (TFF), with partial support from Netflix.

We are excited to announce that Tasveer is more than tripling its Tasveer Film Fund grant in 2022, from $15,000 to $50,000. The Tasveer Film Fund aims to empower South Asian filmmakers to bring their scripts to life with monetary grants, as well as year-long support with resources and mentorship access. We believe that our support can help to take some of the fundraising burden away from filmmakers, while helping to connect them with important resources to get their projects made. These films, that bring necessary representation and social justice issues to light, deserve to be fully resourced and widely seen.

With support from Netflix, TFF will once again offer awards for US-based filmmakers through the Short Film Track, which includes increased grants in the Short Narrative, LGBTQIA+ Short, and Documentary categories.

New in 2022, Tasveer is presenting a Feature Film Track, which will award up to $15,000 to a feature-length narrative. This track is open to submissions from any country.

We will host a live pitching session to determine the award winners in each category. The top 3 finalists will be invited from each category to pitch their short film, LGBTQ+ films, or their documentary treatment.
