Our very own Koffee with @karanjohar
had the crowd in fits of laughter! #TBT
honoured the winners of its 2018 Eliasson Global Leadership prize in Mexico City on November 14th - This year’s prize winners include neuroscientist Rafael Yuste, filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, and the three clerics of the Central African Republic’s Interfaith Peace Platform: Cardinal Dieudonnè Nzapalainga, Pastor Nicolas Guérékoyame-Gbangou, and Imam Omar Kabine Layama.
Our Mobile Cinema, 'Dekh Magar Pyaar Se' recently went out on another tour of Sindh and Southern Punjab.
Messages of women empowerment, tolerance and coexistence have been at the core of the films screened on this tour.
It was heartening to see greater numbers of women turning up for the screenings and learning about their rights and the power of their voice.

Meet Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a multi-award winning Pakistani filmmaker, journalist and activist who uses her world-class storytelling skills to focus global audiences on issues that affect marginalized communities with the aim of changing minds and impacting legislation.
Sharmeen was selected as one of the winners of the 2018 Eliasson Global Leadership Prize, from among 825 nominees from 130 countries. The jury’s selection reflected the following considerations: because of her increasingly insistent and effective leadership not just in changing minds, but in addressing the facts that create outcomes that should be unacceptable in the 21st.

“I am honored to receive the Eliasson Global Leadership Prize at a time when holding up a mirror to society comes with a heavy price. With colleagues being jailed and killed around the world for simply speaking the truth, we need to have the courage to persevere. I remain committed to telling difficult stories in the hope that the conversations they spark will change the way we all see the world.” The Eliasson Global Leadership Prize, named in honor of Jan Eliasson one of the most accomplished global diplomats of our era, is given annually to outstanding leaders from any country and any discipline whose work is innovative, optimistic, courageous, rooted in universal values and global in implication.
