Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival

A project of the Canadian Community Arts Initiative, the MISAFF film festival features the best of new South Asian cinema from around the world especially for our Mississauga and region cinephiles. MISAFF features ground breaking cinema and award winning titles from around the world.

MISAFF is a landmark film festival in Canada. In 2012 we showcased the long form version of Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's Oscar winning film Saving Face. In 2013, we screened Mira Nair masterpiece The Reluctant Fundamentalist to a sold-out audience. We also made waves with the world premiere of the hit Pakistani film Zinda Bhaag (Run For Your Life) which went on to become Pakistan's entry into the Oscars and snagged the Best Picture award at MISAFF. MISAFF14 winners included NOOR (best picture/ actor), MEET THE PATELS (audience choice award), SECRET TRIAL 5 (best documentary), TOMORROW WE DISAPPEAR (honourable mention by the jury) and NOUS AVIONS (Time Flies- best short). Filmmaker and actor Rajat Kapoor presented his latest film ANKHON DEKHI and Ali Kazimi commemorated the 100 years of the Kamagatamaru with his film presentation of critically acclaimed CONTINUOUS JOURNEY.

MISAFF15 will bring award-winning titles and celebrities from Canada and around the world. Films will be presented over a period of four days and attract audiences from all over the greater Toronto area.
