This year's slate of films includes:

Saturday, Oct. 2
The Bengali
Son of a Sweeper

Sunday, Oct. 3
Last Night in Vegas
Strong Son
Runs in the Family
Nothing But a Human
7 Days (
with a post-film Zoom Q+A with director Roshan Sethi)

Monday, Oct. 4

“It’s extremely exciting to bring the South Asian Film Festival back in the theater with a full program that’s as diverse, thought-provoking and entertaining as ever,” said Matthew Curtis, Enzian Programming Director, and Jasbir Mehta, Executive Director of the Asian Cultural Association, in a joint statement.

Tickets are currently available through Enzian Theater. A series pass is also available for admission to all films.
