Teefa in Trouble becomes the first commercial Pakistani blockbuster to be screened at the festival

The Ali-Maya starrer which was released countrywide on July 20, 2018 had a chance to becomes the first blockbuster to represent Pakistan in the renowned film festival ongoing in Fuzhou, China.

The movie’s producer, co-writer, and actor Ali Zafar took it to twitter to share the news:

Ali had a chance to represent Pakistan addressing delegates from around the globe

Speaking at a series of round table meetings hosted by Chinese government and film officials, Ali addressed delegates from India, Turkey, Canada, South Africa, Egypt, Tunisia, Croatia, Serbia, Malaysia and Georgia.

While speaking at the round table, Ali said, “Pakistan has huge potential and these are very important times for our industry with a long way to go to really achieve our full potential. We welcome all dialogue and initiatives to enable us to achieve this potential,”

“I am equally here to underscore the need to create history, opening doors for screening Pakistani films in China and I propose a quota on minimum 3 films a year to be given to Pakistan.”

He further added, “Pakistani film students and film makers should be given an opportunity to work aside Chinese film students and film makers and vice versa. This will not only help diversify our understanding towards each other’s cultures but also accentuate the artistic expression alongside creating massive commercial prospects. Pakistan has enormous potential and is a beautiful country and the world must get to see it.”

Commending to set new benchmarks in cinematography, screenplay, visual effects and the production value for local cinema, the movie was privately screened to over 30 Chinese mainstream distributors at the festival.

Zafar wishes cinematographers from both the countries meet and exchange ideas to propagate a better cinematic framework.

Previously, Chalay Thay Saath starring Syra Shahroz and Punjab Nai Jaungi featuring Humayun Saeed and Mehwish Hayat also made it to film fesitvals in China.
