The 11th Seattle South Asian Film Festival( SSAFF) is scheduled to kick-off on October 14 in Seattle, US. The festival’s Opening Night Gala at Seattle Art Museum will feature Bangladeshi drama Aynabaji. Amitabh Reza Choudhury’s debut film is a dark and engrossing urban thriller about an obsessive actor who gets paid handsomely to serve jail time for the rich and powerful of Dhaka. It’s a great gig until he falls for the girl of his dreams.

The film’s director Amitabh Chowdhury and lead actor Chanchal Chowdhury will attend the festival.

A short Tamil film, A ride to Remember, will also be featured in the Opening Night Gala.

At the Centerpiece Gala at Seattle Asian Art Museum on Thursday, October 20, SSAFF welcomes leading-edge Bangladeshi director Mostofa Sarwar Farooki with his acclaimed comedy Ant Story, a wry and fantastical comedy.

Bangladesh is under the spotlight at SSAFF 2016 with an exceptional program of comedies, dramas, and shorts from one of Asia’s most dynamic and densely populated nations. Scheduled for October 14-23, 2016, SSAFF will showcase 23 feature films and 22 shorts from nine South Asian countries.
