, the Pakistan international Film Festival, (with all its teething problems) was a fantastic initiative that has been much needed in this country since the Kara film festival became defunct about a decade ago. The festival gives a platform for young local filmmakers, and puts us back on the cinema map!
And as I remember glowingly from my time on the organising committee at Kara, the best part was meeting other filmmakers and actors from around the world and exchanging stories and ideas.
This time it was an honour to meet incredible filmmakers like Vishal bharadwaj, SS Rajamouli as well as actors like @pathakvinay
! He was very generous with his praise for #cakethefilm
and said that “it’s a film that not just pakistan should be proud of, but it’s a film any country would be proud of!” Those are big words from a very talented gentleman. ❤️🙏🏼
Here’s to representing Pakistan with honesty, sophistication and depth! We must keep our Heads held high as we put up a mirror to our society and be unafraid to look at our faults. (and be brave enough to move forward!) .
