Pakistan Film Alliance, a community of filmmakers united to rebuild the Pakistani film industry, presents a conversation featuring Nadeem Mandviwalla, Asim Raza and Zeba Bakhtiar.
Seasoned filmmakers and top industry professionals will share their insights on the art and craft of making a successful, commercially viable film in Pakistan; from concept to distribution, and the processes young filmmakers should follow to set the industry back on track. The veterans will also analyze the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats our film industry faces as it gears up towards a much talked about and anticipated revival.
Mr. Nadeem H. Mandviwalla
The visionary behind Nishat Cinema (Karachi), DHA Cinema (Lahore) and Atrium Cinemas (Karachi), Nadeem Mandviwalla is an avid promoter of the Pakistani film industry.
Mr. Asim Raza
Ace commercial and music video Director, Asim Raza is now venturing into the narrative film genre with the same professional and technical finesse that sets his work apart.
Renowned film and television actress and director, Zeba Bakhtiar made her television debut with a PTV play, Anarkali, and went on to gain fame through her Bollywood debut ‘Henna’ in 1991. She is currently in pre-production of her latest feature film.
The discussion will be moderated by Meher Jaffri, producer of the latest Pakistani independent film, Seedlings aka Lamha. Her film has made waves in the international film festival scene, receiving two awards at the New York City International Film Festival (NYCIFF) and nominations in 7 categories.
