The Pakistan International Film Festival was a grand event unlike many others, it was filled with festivities in six different locations. Which of each, highlighted a lot of movies from all over Pakistan, along some of the films from abroad. Finally, the day of the grand finale of PIFF awrds began and the night not only discussed about each film, but celebrated the artists’ names with a complimentary award.

At the red-carpet, many film-makers, writers and actors decorated the event for Karachi’s PIFF Awards, include some of the International ones. This also included the Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Maryam Aurangzeb, who thanked the delegations for coming to Pakistan “and showing that people from other countries can also come to Pakistan and assist Pakistani cinema in its revival.” She stated.

She also highlighted how Pakistan is doing a lot for terrorism. “It shut artists, actors and film-makers up. But now the time has come, and it is good news,” Aurangzeb added.

She further announced how proud of a moment it is because now our movies will be played in Chinese cinemas and how this serves as an inspiration for all film-makers and talents to invest further in the industry.

The minister also added that the government is planning in investing more to the Pakistan Film Awards by May and requested everyone to support this decision.

Mahira Khan also had something encouraging to say about the event, “We’re grateful to KFS and Sultana Siddiqui for opening their arms to you all,” said superstar Mahira Khan, addressing the international delegation. “But more than that, we’re grateful to you for coming running into these arms.”
