Marking the eve of 100th Independence Day of Afghanistan, an eight-day film festival will be inaugurated at Ai Khanum cinema hall in Kabul on Sunday next week.
It’ll be a week of entertainment as about 100 movies are scheduled to be shown during the eight-day festival.
The cinema hall that will host the film festival was inaugurated this year itself, a few months ago and holds the capacity to accommodate 80 viewers together in one shift.
The director of Ai Khanum cinema hall said, “ Ai Khanum cinema hall will welcome those willing to spend the whole week watching movies beginning next Sunday.”
A few films that are scheduled to be shown are a reflection of the film industry of Afghanistan over the past few decades and a few are picked from those over the past 18 years.
An Afghan artist, ManmoonMaqsoudi expressed, “ cinema used to be a culture among Afghans in old Kabul.”
