Mission Statement

About This Cause

Set up in 2013, Indie Meme has been showcasing South Asian Documentaries & Fiction films set in reality with over 350 films screened to date in Dallas & Austin. It turns 10 this year and has solidified its place as a Cultural Institution in Austin. Along the way building a community that supports meaningful, socially relevant, international cinema. In April 2016 we launched the first South Asian Film Festival in Austin - 1st Indie Meme Film Festival (IMFF@Austin). The festival was Virtual for the 2 years of the pandemic and since then has been a Hybrid affair. Through carefully curated events centered around thought-provoking, meaningful cinema, Indie Meme strives to build a community of socially conscious global citizens.Indie meme’s non-theatrical, educational & event-based platforms facilitate relevant discussions & connections, creating an opportunity for possible favorable social impact on local & global communities. We engage, educate, enlighten, entertain & build communities through South Asian & Iranian Cinema. Over the years our films have facilitated discussions on the right to work, dignity of labor, child prostitution, green farming, organ donation, women's empowerment, energy crises of the 21st century, judicial system and the law, music building bridges, mental health,making touch medical decisions, the lgbtq rights and more... But this is done in an inclusive, empathetic & fun environment with professionals in the field being a part of post screening discussions... So Indie Meme really strives to build a socially conscious inclusive and fun community of people who care about their world :-) And we have a member base who support and encourage us in our effort to do so. Thank you for considering us for your donation!
