Lahore, Nov 28 (ANI): Two acclaimed Indian filmmakers — Govind Nihalani and Anwar Iqbal have expressed high hopes for the future of the film industry in Pakistan.
Participating in a seminar on interactive film making during the World Performing Arts Film Festival, Nihalani believed that the younger generation of Pakistanis represented a dynamic force of transformation due to their thirst for international exposure, either through personal travel or the media.
The key, though, he said, was to ensure that filmmaking became more economical.
And, once potential filmmakers gained access to technical and financial resources, audiences would be exposed to a kaleidoscopic range of individual narratives, he added.
Nilhani also stressed the importance of scriptwriting as an integral part of the filmmaking process because it is impossible to make good films from bad scripts.
The festival, which began on November 22, ends on December 3, It includes performances in dance, theatre, puppetry, music and films, the Daily Times reported.
The festival includes five categories including music, theatre, puppetry, dance and film.
Audiences are reportedly looking forward to the music and dance performances. Dances will be conducted in classical and modern style, while music will include western, folk, rock, fusion, pop, mystic, ghazal and classical styles. (ANI)
