ARY Digital Network is the leading media network of Pakistan viewed in over 100 countries around the world and as an effort to support the upcoming filmmakers we have started the ARY Film Festival as an yearly event. The ARY Film Festival (AFF) is the biggest film festival in Pakistan. In 2017, the festival provided a platform to local and international filmmakers to showcase their talent here in Pakistan at an industry level.

The 3 day festival commenced in May 2017 and screened 33 films, which were shortlisted by the jury from around 400 entries received from all over the world. The jury itself is comprised of some very well known names from the local and international film making business. Apart from the above mentioned regular entries, the festival also came up with special screenings of internationally acclaimed films such as Maheen Zia’s ‘Lyari Notes’, ‘Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velazquez Story’ contributed by the American Film Showcase and Anjum Shehzad’s ‘Mah e Mir’.  Additionally, Academy award winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s ‘Song of Lahore’ was also premiered at the festival. Delhi International Film Festival was also one of the collaborating partners of the festival.
