Aks Film, Art and Dialogue Festival continued with its third edition for the visibility and betterment of the minorities through the medium of cinema, art and dialogue in 2016.

The third year of Aks festival took place in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, Pakistan. FDI was proud and delighted to present a program in partnership with Aks Festival in Pakistan. Together with our partners, we offered a 20 day festival of international standards with a great program of highly acclaimed films in the category of fictions, documentaries and shorts. Furthermore, we organized dialogue events, creating safe artist spaces to showcase arts and also hosted guest artists, activists and academics from different parts of the world.

Aks Festival and Forum for Dignity Initiatives (FDI) would like to extend our gratitude to all our partners and supporters. We’d like to acknowledge funding from Movies that Matters. We are extremely thankful to Goethe Institute in Pakistan, Heinrich Böll Stiftung Pakistan and Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for helping us bringing international artists from their respective countries.
