The work of Vidhi Films and Vidhi Film Fund in media, research and social change offers a range of opportunities for collaboration and partnership, primarily in three areas. Film production. Outreach and political education. And technical training.
Film Production. Several feature films are already at various stages of scripting and development. This work-in-progress portfolio currently includes: 'Rafina', 'The Jasmine Connection', and 'Name: Meena. Country: Afghanistan' as well as a series of documentaries titled 'Love Laws'.
Outreach and political education. In a country marked by high levels of illiteracy, Vidhi Films and Vidhi Film Fund believe cinema is a powerful vehicle for political education and social change in Pakistan. Hence over the last several years they have screened films and generated discussion and debate in many small towns and remote villages where people have no access to cinema.
Technical Training. In the absence of film schools in Pakistan, Vidhi Films and Vidhi Film Fund believe it is essential to build a professional base for filmmaking. Through workshops, interactions with international experts and hands-on experience, over one hundred Pakistani actors and crewmembers have already been trained. Additionally, a three-year program of skills transfer in Camera, Sound and Light has been formulated for 2006 - 2008. This program will be the first of its kind in Pakistan.
