The Pakistan International Film Festival (PIFF) aims to be the largest film
festival in Pakistan. PIFF will screen features, shorts and documentaries
from Pakistan and around the world. Our mission is to create a unique platform which promotes both
Pakistani cinema and Pakistani filmmakers by showcasing their films to diverse international audiences. We
also plan to bring international filmmakers and their work to Pakistan to create an interactive space for
exchange of ideas and for open dialogue. PIFF will provide opportunities to encourage co-productions and to portray Pakistan as an exciting and vibrant country, with great cinematic potential.
