Sikhs Across the World II
10:15 AM – 12:15 PM

One of the most widely-travelled minority groups in the world, Sikhs have made their home in over 100 countries. They all share one thing in common: a struggle to assimilate into new cultures while still retaining meaningful degrees of Sikhi in their new lives and the lives of their children.  A fascinating look at various Sikhs whose stories will inspire you.

Social Issues
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

Many controversial or sensitive issues in the Sikh diaspora are ignored or hidden, and grow worse and worse.  SAFF intends to air even the most controversial of issues, because we believe that the light of day can provide solutions or new insights. Films in this cluster address such sensitive issues as Sikh drug addiction, domestic abuse, attitudes towards the LGBTQ community, bullying, and other interpersonal relationship challenges that we feel are important to expose.
