TWU to host South Asian Film Festival Nov. 28-Dec. 7


DENTON – Texas Woman’s University will screen 15 award-winning documentary films from the Traveling Film Festival of South Asia Nov. 28-Dec. 7. The festival is being presented as part of TWU’s Asian Infusion Initiative, a faculty driven project designed to educate the TWU community about issues surrounding women, health and social justice in Asia.

The films are from Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan and will be screened at the TWU Denton campuses. The festival is free and open to the public. For a schedule of film screening times and locations, visit www.twu.edu and click on the calendar of events or call 940-898-3352.

Additional showings will also be scheduled in Dallas and Houston. The films vary in length from 30 minutes to just over an hour.

“We are very excited about bringing the festival to TWU,” Dr. Victoria McGillin, TWU associate provost, said. “This is an opportunity for audiences to learn more about the cultural, social and economic forces shaping Asia and how it impacts our lives in this increasingly global society.”

The films are from Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan and address artistic, cultural, political, economic, health and social issues in the region. More information on the films and the Traveling Film Festival of South Asia can be found at www.himalassociation.org/fsa/filmsouthasia_tfsa-04-list.htm.
