Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival

National Bank MISAFF features the best of new South Asian and select Middle Eastern film titles for our Mississauga and region cinephiles. MISAFF features ground-breaking and award-winning films, carefully curated for their cinematic excellence and social consciousness. The festival starts on Thursday the 4th of August with a red carpet gala screening of a multiple-award winning, critically acclaimed film to be announced very soon. It will be the Canadian premiere followed by the MISAFF16 opening party. We are delighted to return for another year with new sponsors and a brand new program entirely presented at the Cineplex Mississauga. 

MISAFF is a landmark film festival in Canada. Canadian film artists Deepa Mehta, Ali Kazimi, Sami Khan, Angad Bhalla, Amar Wala, Anita Majumdar, Raymond Ablack, Gabe Grey, Shireen Pasha and Richie Mehta are some of the people who have been involved in the festival over the years. 

Mosaic International South Asian film festival (MISAFF) is the Canada's premier festival of new South Asian and select Middle Eastern cinema. Held from 6-9 August at Cineplex Mississauga and the Living Arts Centre.

The Pakistani filmmaker and activist Sabeen Mahmud was killed in 2015 by two gunmen for hosting a talk at her gallery T2F in Karachi. With the permission of Sabeen's mother Mahenaz Mahmud, MISAFF15 has decided to dedicate an award in her memory. This year the award was generously funded by The Citizen's Foundation Canada. The winner will be announced at our awards ceremony on the closing night of the film festival by the MISAFF16 jury.
