NASFF was a thought which was sow by ISPR. To make a strong tree IT Minister Fawad Choudhary assists it. Without him it was impossible to fulfill this ISPR’s dream. He says that “modern world is based on the opinions. Media is a tool of a state that plays an important role to show the real image of the state. Basically, the duration of short films is 40 mints.”

In the Festival which recently held on 26-June-2021 the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan also took part in the NASFF ceremony. He really appreciated the efforts of the youth which they made to show the real Pakistan to the world. He Addressed that the world only valuable for the originality, not copied. We should promote our own culture. He said “Soft image come from self-esteem, people respect those who first respect himself. So Those who have no self-esteem, they copy to other people because they don’t believe themselves. So if we want to promote our soft image we should promote Pakistan. Our founders were great personalities; the greatness of Allama Muhammad Iqbal was that he brings the original thinking to awake the Muslim unity, so we need such a type of self-esteem.”

As this is the good initiative which is taken by ISPR which definitely promotes our real image towards the world. Which also been the source to promote media. Safe Tourism in Gilgit Baltistan
