Chalta Phirta Documentary Festival at The Hive

Chalta Phirta Documentary Film Festival is an exciting initiative of the Documentary Association of Pakistan (DAP). A traveling documentary film festival, that will travel to Pakistani cities such as Karachi, Hyderabad, Jamshoro, Lahore, Multan, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Islamabad, Quetta, Peshawar, and Gilgit. Through Chalta Phirta Documentary Festival, DAP’s aim is to broaden its audience and outreach to cities that are frequently ignored when it comes to the provision of thriving cultural and social events. The festival will showcase a new set of documentary films in each of these cities on a bi-annual basis and aims to spark important conversations through them on a national level.

About DAP:
Documentary Association of Pakistan (DAP) is an initiative to promote the art of documentary films in Pakistan, to strengthen the community of docum0entary filmmakers in Pakistan, and to provide mentorship and training to documentary filmmakers working in Pakistan.

DAP is working to popularize the culture of documentary watching in Pakistan by organizing film screenings in public spaces across Pakistan for free. We form collaborations with like-minded partner venues and screen documentary films that are followed by powerful discussions between the filmmaker and our audiences.

DAP also works closely with documentary filmmakers to provide them with networking and training opportunities by organizing filmmaker meet-ups and training workshops. Most documentary filmmakers in Pakistan work independently, and for them to have access to a platform like DAP that aims to bring documentary filmmakers together is very crucial.

Venue: The Hive, 1st Floor, M A Tabba Foundation Building, Block 9, Gizri Road, Clifton, Karachi.
