The first edition of Gandhara Independent Film Festival was a success because of the quality of the films that were selected and screened virtually. 

We at GIFF are grateful  and will be emailing Official Selection Certificates to the filmmaker of the selected films. Keep an eye out for them on the 10th of November. 

Thank you for your submissions and we cannot wait to watch move stories from you.


The first edition of Gandhara Independent Film Festival 2020 concluded today. It consisted of 83 films from 40 countries and played over 11 days. But we at GIFF like to think that it consisted of more than just mere numbers . The films we curated were stories that represented the breadth of human emotions and perseverance. They also represented the individual endurance and vision of the filmmakers who submitted to us and we are eternally grateful for your trust in us. We thank you for your trust and for your submissions.

We would like to additionally thank our partners and industry panelists in taking this journey with us.

Gandhara independent Film Festival will return for another edition and will be accepting entries at a date to be decided. We cannot wait for your next submissions and curate the stories that move you.

From all of us at Gandhara Independent Film Festival, thank you.
