Iran will help Pakistan with filmmaking
PESHAWAR: Counsel General of Iran, Muhammad Hassan Emani, urged the Pakistani media to benefit from Iran’s technological development in the field of filmmaking.
Mr Emani was speaking at a prize distribution ceremony on Tuesday that concluded a two-day training workshop on “Multi Skilled Journalism” organised by the Peshawar Press Club in collaboration with the Iranian Consulate, Peshawar.
Mr Emani said that Iran had attained technical specialty in film production and wanted to share its expertise with Pakistan. Iran had achieved unprecedented technological advancement due to which its documentaries and films about Islamic history had profound effects not only on Muslims but on Christians as well.
“Western media unleashed propaganda on women’s rights in Iran where women work in various occupations, including journalism,” Mr Emani said. “Iran will continue to counter western propaganda through its films and stand up against imperialist powers.”
“The MMA government will extend maximum support for the welfare of journalists,” NWFP Minister for Information Asif Iqbal Daudzai said. “The MMA government has agreed to make a welfare foundation for journalists.” He said the committee would submit its draft before the Cabinet by July 16. Mr Daudzai also said the provincial government would support the Peshawar Press Club in organizing training workshops for journalists. staff report
