Pakistani short film on vaccine hesitancy wins award in Turkey

The Unmasking, a 15 minutes long, Pakistani short film on Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy has won best foreign short film award in Istanbul, Turkey.

The film has been written and directed by Khalid Hasan Khan; an award winning filmmaker, who had won best film award for his debut feature film, ‘HOTEL’ from the Delhi International Film Festival in 2013.
