The 2nd South Asian Alternative Film Festival (Festival du Film d’Asie du Sud Transgressif – FFAST) is now calling for entries. The Festival will be held in Paris, from February 5 – 12, 2014.

The aim of this Festival is to present independent, alternative films from South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan) that tackle social issues and provide an original aesthetic and cinematographic approach.

The Official selection will present one competitive section of long feature films, for which a filmmaker can propose his/her film. Three prizes will be awarded : Official Jury’s Best film,  Student Jury’s Best Film & Audience Award.

The Festival considers films produced in South Asia, in a joint production or from the South Asian diaspora.
