On Friday, 2nd December the Pakistan Film Festival kicked off in New York which was the brainchild of Dr. Maleeha Lodhi, who is the permanent representative for UN for Pakistan. The event took place at the New York Headquarters of UN.
With a host of Pakistani celebrities including but not limited to Saba Qamar, Mahira Khan, Adeel Hussain and Wajahat Rauf, the red carpet became even more glamorous at the Pakistan Film Festival.
Pakistani films till now belonging to all different genres were featured in this festival and thus the revival of Pakistani cinema has taken another major turn in the New York Film Festival.
Such festivals are essential in moving the Pakistani film making game to the next level. We hope that other such initiatives are taken by authorities to further promote our local talent and to shed a lime light on our marvelous industry.
