Winner of Full Length Feature at GFF2012 ‘Karim ul Islam’

“Heer Ranjha”
Director: Karim-ul-Islam
A story of an adolescent who falls deeply and irrevocably in love with a nectar sweet voice on the radio, just like everyone else who ever tuned in to her show. A story of a protagonist’s struggles and ambitions to somehow get nearer to the owner of that voice. The movie is a strong interesting plot encapsulating the viewer to accept that we too form unhealthy alliances and affections for the unattainable fictional characters on TV.

Runnerup of Shorts Category at GFF2012 ‘Ozair Rao’

“Displaced – The Forgotten Kids”
Director: Ozair Rao
Highlights Karachi’s street children most of whom become drug addicts or suffer abuse of different kinds. It’s a story of teenagers but not your average ones. They live on the streets and know a side of life that most of us cannot even imagine.
