Another Pakistani film has waved our flag on an international platform. Load Wedding – which was recently screened at several film festivals – has bought global recognition by winning a special jury award for Best International Feature Film at the Rajasthan International Film Festival 2019 (RIFF).
Directed by Nabeel Qureshi, the film previously bagged a nomination in the Best Film category at the Jaipur International Film Festival.
Load Wedding featured Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa in lead roles. The film received glowing reviews when it was released on Eidul Azha last year but clashed with JPNA2 and Parwaaz Hai Junoon. Though it wasn’t able to rake in the big bucks locally, it continues to win accolades internationally.
With an aim to showcase the diversity in the world of entertainment around the globe, this film extravaganza in Rajasthan included documentaries, short films and feature films from all over the world.
Here’s a list of winners at RIFF 2019:
