The festival took place at Yala Maya Kendra and Patan Higher Secondary School Auditorium in Patan Dhoka, Lalitpur.

65 spectacular films were selected for screening Film Southasia 2022, the Festival’s Silver Jubilee Year! The 13th edition of the biennial festival of Southasian documentaries started on 21 April and closed late on 24 April, with the award ceremony.

Of the more than 3000 films submitted our selection committee had a tough task trying to determine what to pick. Valuing the craft and significance of the story alike, they also kept an eye on including all areas of this vast region.
