Dubai Expo 2020, the world’s largest fair showcasing cultural, technological and architectural marvels, is set to screen 11 Pakistani films.
The ongoing edition of the World Expo is the first in the Middle East and expects around 25 million visitors until its end in March 2022. With dazzling pavilions from over 192 countries, Dubai Expo is poised to become the largest in the region.
Pakistan’s “Hidden Treasure”-themed pavilion at the fair attracted a large number of visitors, especially from India and France. The soundtrack for the 2020 edition was created by musician Rohail Hyatt and the event features a number of notable names in Pakistani music and cinema.
Many stars including Ayesha Omar and Nadia Hussain promoted their beauty brands at Expo Dubai and talked about putting Pakistan on the map in terms of business and other opportunities.
On Thursday, Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that the World Expo will screen 11 Pakistani films from January 21 to February 26, 2022.
He shared a list of movies with screening dates.
