South Asian Film Festival of Montréal

When: Through Nov. 28

The Kabir Centre for Arts & Culture, a nonprofit dedicated to the promotion of South Asian music, dance, cinema and poetry, presents its annual South Asian Film Festival, a 10-day extravaganza of films by and for the people of the Indian subcontinent and its diaspora. Select in-person screenings take place at Cinéma Cineplex Forum and Cinémathèque in Montréal, but most films are available for free online. Two evenings are dedicated to the work of Satyajit Ray, a late titan of 20th-century Bengali cinema, and Shahin Parhami (pictured), a widely acclaimed documentarian who passed away earlier this year.

Price: Various prices; $25 for festival pass.
