Islamabad’s first literature festival

This film explores Islamabad’s first Literature Festival, organised in April 2013 by Oxford University Press. The event proved a huge success with big names and packed sessions, and almost 6,000 visitors on the first day.

The two-day festival had more than 35 sessions with 70 writers and events on literature, social and political issues, book launches and theatre performances.

Some of the issues addressed during the festival included Pakistani history, foreign policy and child labour.
