    forgot to add also in 2012 pakistani film bol wons 3 awards at asian film festival in london including best film



    London: Pakistan’s film Bol has secured three awards in the The London Asian Film Festival at the prestigious BAFTA building. Bol film, Humaima Malik, and Amer Kashmiri were declared winner of the different categories.

    The 14th London Asian Film Festival came to a close recently with the final awards ceremony. The cinema of Pakistan was represented at the festival with a screening of Bol, a film which focuses on gender discrimination.

    The film’s lead actress Humaima Malik told media why she felt it was important for Pakistani cinema to be represented at the festival: “Bol is an art piece from my country so it feels great to represent my cinema and my country. It’s a very meaningful film. There’s no ‘hulla gulla’ and it features the real experiences of women. It’s an important film because the subject is so powerful and it’s been nominated in so many different countries for so many awards.

    “We have seven nominations today. It’s not about winning. It’s just about being represented amongst so many people and great films. All the team is here. It feels great. I’m crossing my fingers. I get to see a lot of good work here too from other countries, she said.

    Accepting the ‘Best Film’ award for Bol, the film’s line producer Fatima Khan said: “I would like to dedicate this award to the youth of Pakistan. They are very talented people who are working relentlessly to promote a very positive image of Pakistan.”
