LAHORE: (Friday, June 17, 2022): Punjab University College of Art and Design Department of Graphic Design has organized a seminar on film industry where the team of a new film: Kamli, have been invited to give an insight of the film and to discuss the challenges of the contemporary cinema. On this occasion Chairman Department of Graphic Design Israr Chishti, Director postgraduate Research Centre of Creative Arts Prof Dr Bilal Ahmad, Film Director Sarmad Khoosat, faculty members and a large number of students were present. In his address, Israr Chishti said that art students must watched films as it was the medium of art intellectuals and introduced new ways of thinking. Sarmad Khoosat said that film was a combination of all arts but it’s the story that grabs the attention of the people. He said that films could get fame without star cast as well. Dr Ahmad Bilal said that Kamli was an open ended film that leaved the audience with a lot of questions and that’s what a film or an art work should do. “It should not provide us with answers but to provoke us to think and to engage us with new questions,” he added. In the end, the students have asked interesting and thought provoking questions.
