$5,000 Goal

Did you know less than 1% of South Asians are seen on Hollywood screens? Let's change that narrative together.

Help us reach our goal of $5000 to help South Asian Filmmakers access the resources they need to excel!

Tasveer, a nonprofit film and art organization based in Seattle, was founded in March 2002 in response to the rise in hate and stereotypes against South Asians following 9/11. In the quest to elevate South Asian representation, Tasveer empowers underrepresented South Asian filmmakers through exhibitions, resources, and funding. 

🌍 Global Impact: With 25.2% of the world population, South Asians deserve representation.

🎬 Lack of Representation: Only 4 South Asian show creators and a handful of lead actors? It's time for change.

💡 Opportunity for Growth: 5.4 million South Asians in the U.S. - let's bring diverse stories to life!

Support the first-ever Global Tasveer Film Market during GiveBIG WA. Your donation will:

  • Enable Director-Producer teams to pitch and secure financing
  • Back diverse storytelling in narrative features, shorts, and documentaries
  • Provide mentorship to emerging producers
  • Host informative industry panels and masterclasses 


We are the Only Oscars® Qualifying South Asian Film Festival in the World!

Our Mission is to inspire social change through thought-provoking films, art, and storytelling.


📣 Spread the Word: Share our campaign with friends, family, and colleagues who champion diversity in cinema.
