The 19th edition of Tasveer Film Festival and Market (TFF&M) will begin from October 8 to October 13, 2024. The Tasveer Film Festival is the first and only South Asian film festival whose winning films are eligible for the Academy Awards. The Tasveer Film Market (TFM) will be the first-ever market, launched outside of South Asia, to increase representation of the global diasporic filmmaking community.

With the theme of connecting creatives and creating opportunities, TFM24 cater to filmmakers, producers, distributors, financiers, sales agents, legal, talent managers, festival directors, and those looking to collaborate in the U.S. market and invest in projects from the diasporic community. This market will serve as a commerce hub for a wide range of buyers and sellers offering business opportunities for South Asian diaspora projects from Asia, the UK, South Africa, Australia, and other countries that have potential for commercial viability in the U.S. Other components will include a Work-in-Progress Lab and a Producers Mentor Lab.

Selected filmmakers and editors will be invited to showcase rough cuts to industry executives and will receive strategic feedback and investment opportunities. Over three days of masterclasses, mentoring sessions, and networking events, TFM24 will facilitate informal conversations to help build industry connections and collaborations.

Tasveer co-founder Rita Meher commented, "the goal of the Tasveer Film Market is to elevate South Asian filmmaking in the West and initiate a lucrative marketplace by tapping into the support of our creative community. Our aspiration is to be the Sundance of South Asian film festivals. We look forward to welcoming filmmakers, producers, distributors, financiers, sales agents, talent managers, and others in an effort to inspire, equip, and showcase the larger diasporic filmmaker community on a global stage.”
