Despite many challenges of health and security measures this year, we are committed to organise the 6th edition of the Festival in Dec 2021 The main focus this year is solidarity, diversity and accessibility within our society. The festival will take place in Multan, Lahore and Karachi with a parallel programme of Aks OutReach in 10 cities that has already been started in September 2021. The main objective behind Aks OutReach is to host film screenings for educational purposes not only in public spaces but also in private houses, we screen films with debates at universities, colleges, and schools but also encourage people to host a screening in their private circles. Our OutReach events are being circulated in almost every corner of Pakistan and so far aimed to be presented in 10 major cities of Pakistan.
Apart from our regular screenings the festival is planning to organise dialogue and art events in Lahore and Karachi. The festival will also be hosting International guests from partner film festivals such as Pink Life Turkey, Queer festival Heidelberg, Germany and artists from the UK and Sri Lanka.
