Aks International Minorities Festival in Pakistan

March 09, 2018

From 9th-20th of March 2018, the Aks International Minorities Festival will have its 3rd edition. The LGBTQI+ festival will travel through five of Pakistan’s biggest cities (Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Peshawar and Hyderâbâd) expecting to attract around 2500-3000 visitors. To carry on its mission to promote the visibility and empowerment of marginalized minorities, the festival will be screening films that emphasize how important it is to have stories told by people with diverse ethnic, religious and sexual backgrounds.

Aks International Minorities Festival is one of the 21 projects that were sponsored by Movies that Matter in 2017. Click here to read more about our other supported projects of this year.
