With the cold weather on the way, there’s nothing like heading to the theatre and watching a good flick.

From November 22 to 25, you can do just that at the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival (VISAFF).

The festival began in 2008 in order to “bridge the gap” between South Asian talent and mainstream audiences.

Now in its 10th year, the festival celebrates the best in contemporary South Asian cinema from around the world.

This year, the festival theme is  Bollywood and Beyond, and celebrates stories that engage, educate, and inspire audiences by promoting free expression, cross-cultural interactions, and understanding, and tolerance.

The festival kicks off with the opening night gala on November 22 at Surrey City Hall. The gala includes a pre-reception with cocktails, appetizers, and the North American premiere of Megsampur.

Check out the festival’s full schedule here.
