Pakistan International Film Festival 2018 | An Event Review!

Pakistan International Film Festival 2018 | An Event Review!

Last night at Frere Hall Pakistan, held a Gala Awards Night for the first ever

Pakistan International Film Festival.

Presided by the Minister of State for Information and

Broadcasting, Mariam Aurengzeb, it was an

exclusive gathering of a couple hundred people only.

It was a star studded affair that was all the more ritzy

because it boasted of guests from other Countries

amongst them peers who hail from across the border,

India.  Their presence made the entire evening a happier event especially since every last one of

them was

full of how happy they were to be in Pakistan and how

the Love and Affection being showered upon

them had them floored.

With around 400 entries from more than a dozen

Countries

the jury had a tough time deciding on the winners with

India and Iran bagging an award each for their entries.

It is a great initiative that has been taken with Madam Sultana Siddiqi of Hum TV at the forefront

of this venture.

As an initiative to reach out to other countries and

reestablish our presence within the Global

Entertainment Circles, it is indeed a laudable effort.

We hope to see this as the beginning of much more to

come for Pakistan generally.

With full attendance by the who’s who of the Film and

Entertainment fraternity it is no wonder that the gathering was a gorgeous affair filled with

Beautiful People.

Highlights of the evening included an impromptu humming by Hadiqa Kiyani and Ali Zafar

who were on stage to give away the trophy of the best

music score.

Another highlight was when Ali Zafar pointed out that

the stage was dominated by Women and how

progressive and empowered the Ladies of Pakistan

were, with their Influence ranging far and wide!

He stole my heart with that line at least!

As is no surprise the best Music, Actor and Director Awards were reserved for Pakistani entries

from a  certain channel only. And that is my only grievance for

the evening. When an initiative is as great as PIFF then we

need not promote movies or Actors from a certain background

or company only. We do need to widen our horizons and

include the entire fraternity.

But all in all a great evening which hopefully is the predecessor

of many to come.

 

Attached are some highlights from the Red Carpet for my Readers!
