Keeping their tradition of unconventional film marketing, the team of Cake, namely Aaminah Sheikh, Sanam Saeed and Adnan Malik will be very much a part of this festival where they will promote their movie. Besides movies, veterans will be advocating for music curriculum. We will see Khalid Anam as one of the speakers for the same. Moreover, Jami Mehmood, whose much loved film Moor won international awards, will also grace this event and will carry a discussion along with Noor ul Huda Shah and Timothy Patrick of folklore finesse; the topic of the discussion will be why do writers/producers dress old tales in new clothes and how filmmakers (for instance Padmaavat) struggle in presenting old stories.
