60 second film festival is an initiative by Morango films to highlight some social issue in Pakistan. This initiative is truly for individuals and groups to bring up their work which explains the condition of our country. The best 60 second film must include a theme and message to be conveyed to us. The video can be on any topic representing the incidents inside the country.
Morango Films have created a platform by the name of 60-second Film Festival. The festival is calling for entries in the month of August for content on social issues and development, entertainment, national and international issues, public service messages to name a few.
Countries, cities and communities committing to a cause or their beliefs struggle to find opportunities or creative platforms where they not only showcase their efforts but also to interact with knowledge leaders.
60 Seconds Film Festival is one such platform. The Festival will engage upcoming artists/producers from all around from Pakistan to exhibit their work on various socially driven issues. The platform will provide a knowledge field for the Pakistani Youth to display their work by capturing the challenges of the society, and address the issue such as Peace & Religious Harmony and Tolerance.
The focus shall at all level address critical social issues; that covers education, civic sense, health, art, water, gender, extremism, entertainment and current affairs.
