I am a Pakistani-Canadian filmmaker and playwright. I work out of Karachi, independently creating short and feature films for international festivalsonline streaming and television broadcast. I believe cinema has incredible power, and as an emerging writer-director in a country with a nascent film industry, I believe it is important to create films that highlight local issues that can make an impact both in Pakistan and internationally!

This Patreon Page acts as a membership program where you can donate to me monthly so that I can continue create content that will otherwise be impossible in Pakistan. With your support,  I am able to craft cinema that has the potential to inspire social change. Your money will go directly into the active projects that I am developing- for production, crew, camera, locations and post-production costs. In Pakistan there is no concept of public funds, and private investors have no interest in creating World Cinema. In return, I will give you exclusive previews, behind-the-scenes diaries and the private Patron Podcast!

I have created short films that have been screened at the Locarno Film Festival, London Short Film Festival & Batumi Art-House Festival. My acclaimed short film, Rang Raaz, about interfaith marriage, had it's North American television broadcast through ZEE TV. I have worked with the ICRC to create nationwide public-service announcements that have had the effect of increasing ambulance safety awareness in Pakistan. I believe in the power of cinema to create real change!

  • FLAME - a fiction feature film about a young woman who develops psychosis after a traumatic incident. The film will explore mental health, feminism, and toxic masculinity in contemporary Pakistan. The project was selected for the Open Doors Producer's Lab at the Locarno Film Festival in 2018. FLAME, is inspired by my short film, Dia- that is currently touring festivals internationally. 
  • 'JUNGLI' (STRAY) - a short film made in collaboration with United Kingdom Medical Aid Foundation to Pakistan. The film is about a young man who, after discovering he has HIV, decides to end his life- until a stray dog helps him change his mind. The film speaks to the rising suicide rates in young males in South Asia. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?


Making independent cinema in a country without any kind of local infrastructure can be incredibly daunting. Making cinema about topics that people would prefer to have swept under the rug- even more so.

After discussing with my team, we came to the conclusion that we need your help. 

With you on the team, we can continue to create films with and for you. You will be a part of our online crew and be involved in our film development. As a Patron, you will also be a part of an exclusive community with access to much more than just the video. We will communicate with you directly with behind the scenes, news, ideas and much more!

I'M NEW TO PATREON, HOW DOES THIS WORK?

If you'd like to support us, you'll get access to Patreon-only stuff depending on your level of contribution. As a Patreon, you'll get notified anytime we post something visible at your level of contribution (you can turn these notifications off if you like).

It's easy to join. Just choose your contribution (rewards) to set up an account. Payments are done securely (for instance through PayPal).

Help make a difference by commissioning film-art pieces that inspire, and create social change. Meet us on the red carpet for the world premiere of our next feature and short films!

Let's start this adventure together!

Goals
$0 of $5,000 per month
Fund our fiction feature film, FLAME. This would be enough money for us to hire & pay our team, attend international script workshops, and make one of the best films in Pakistan's cinematic history. We already have our story treatment ready, an internationally-acclaimed short film as the inspiration and an excited cast & crew!

When we reach this life altering goal we will throw the first National screening of Dia (and subsequently travel with the film across Pakistan) at our partner facility Alliance Francais Karachi, give you the grand tour and thank you in person for being so awesome! If you do not live in the Karachi area we will provide a live stream to the event so you don't have to miss a thing
