Request a Grant Writer

Grant of $5,000 to a USA filmmaker to create a film with a social justice theme. Funding is intended to support the production of creative and high-quality films that inspire social change. Eligible films must be based on the experience of South Asian Americans and must represent South Asian individuals in the cast, crew, and story.

Tasveer aims to engage the community through films, storytelling, and visual art from South Asia and its diaspora to help change narratives, foster a deeper understanding of South Asian culture, and to build a just and sustainable society.

Tasveer is excited to launch the Tasveer Film Fund (TFF), the first-ever dedicated grant for South Asian filmmakers in the United States. The script must incorporate a social justice issue or theme in the story, and be based in the South Asian American experience (set in North America). The film must include South Asian representation in the story as well as in the cast/crew.

"South Asia” covers Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, Sri Lanka, and their diasporas worldwide.
