Festival 2022

Hybrid Edition 3

The 3rd Gandhara Independent Film Festival 2022 is officially closed. We held a hybrid edition where we curated and screened films in our digital edition from 9-13 September and collaborated with NAPA to exhibit selected films in person - September 24 & 25, 2022. This 3rd edition was a resounding success and we have many people to thank for this continued success.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the filmmakers who submitted their films to be considered. A huge thank you to our digital panelists who made time to speak to us about their craft and the importance of film festivals as well as the panelists invited by NAPA; and lastly, we thank our global and Pakistani audience for watching the festival and ardently supporting GIFF.
