Pakistani cinema has witnessed a resurgence over the last few years and Executive Producer of Pakistan International Screen Awards, Faisal Khan, shared his vision for the event; "Over the last few years Pakistan has been lucky and grateful to have come across such diversity in talent from both men and women. It gives me great pleasure to have a platform to showcase the progress of our film fraternity and in a time and age of a digital world it is time to stand up for what one believes in. Patriotism is at an all-time high and we all can't wait to showcase our best."
