I am a London Film School graduate and an independent producer from Karachi. My portfolio includes documentaries, art films and drama. My work has been supported by Channel 4 (UK), CBA WorldView, Al Jazeera and Arts Council England. My films have shown in HotDocs, SXSW, Sheffield Doc Fest and Geneva Contemporary Art Centre. I’ve participated in ESoDoc, Low Budget Film Forum and UnionDocs. I’m now polishing my skills in fiction cinema to make my debut feature film. I am also an educator and a script consultant. I aim to apply the international experience I am gathering to help revive Pakistani cinema.
Parvaaz Pictures has recently been founded by Seemab Gul with a view to supporting the ongoing revival of Pakistani cinema. Inspired by social-realist and art house world cinema, we aim to make thought provoking feature films with socio-political elements from talented Pakistani auteurs. Parvaaz Pictures is developing creative documentaries and mixed genre fiction films for the local and international market. International co-productions would be ideal to make highly engaging controversial films free from censorship, with a potential to reach large audiences worldwide.
