People from all walks of life gathered at PACC on the 26th of March to experience the magic of filmmaking. 60SIFF – Karachi Chapter featured a diverse range of programs for all age groups. The festival consisted of two sessions i.e. morning and afternoon.
The morning session started off with Filmmaking & Photography Workshop for kids that aimed to hone the creativity of storytellers of tomorrow. Followed by that was a screening of films made by kids for the kids to give them an insight into the technique of conveying an impactful message through a film.
The afternoon session entailed a panel discussion on “Film for Social Change” where the panelists and the attendees exchanged views on how filmmaking can be used to spread awareness about issues that need to be addressed urgently. The evening was concluded by the screening of top films of the year 2015-16. Each and every films was appreciated by the audience and the response was great.
It was a great pleasure conducting a festival in the biggest city of Pakistan and we hope to bring back the festival next year.
