Check Out The Lineup And Trailers For NYC's 11th South Asian International Film Festival

Editor, U.S. ; Dallas, Texas (@HatefulJosh)
I've had the privilege of covering New York City's South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF) since 2010, shortly after I came on board at ScreenAnarchy. 

Each of those five years has brought at least a couple of films that have made it into my year end top ten, and this year looks like a solid bet to continue the trend. The festival has honed its focus on a set of films that we've been looking forward to for a long time, and if you're in New York in November, you'd be foolish to pass it up. Here's the lineup, along with images and trailers where available.

SAIFF kicks off with X - The Film on November 18 and runs through November 23. You will be able to find new information and ticketing links at their website very soon. Click this link for more information.

Click through the gallery below for a few of the films we are most anticipating!

Opening the festival will be the world premiere of the mega omnibus X - The Film. I am super excited for this one! X is a collaborative effort between ten of India's hottest young writer/directors, and that much talent on one screen is not to be missed.

All ten filmmakers will be in attendance for the premiere, a monumental feat if ever there was one. Filmmakers include Sudhish Kamath (Good Night | Good Morning), Q (Gandu), Nalan Kumarasamy (Soodhu Kavvum), Suparn Verma (Aatma, Ek Haseena Ek Khiladi), Raja Sen, Sandeep Mohan (Love Wrinkle Free), Pratim Gupta (Paanch Adhyay), Hemant Gaba (Shuttlecock Boys), Abhinav Shiv Tiwari Sankhnaad (Oass), Anu Menon (London Paris New York), and Rajshree Ojha (Aisha, Chaurahen).

Check out the trailer and synopsis below:

'X' is a filmmaker’s journey through his past encounters with his 10 ex-girlfriends as he spends one surreal unforgettable night at a film festival after he meets a mysterious girl who intriguingly seems to have something to do with every woman in his life.
