Abrar is an accomplished film-maker, entrepreneur and founder of the 60 Second International Film Festival. With the Lab’s support, Abrar will set up an Accountability Film School in Karachi, to support citizens in understanding and addressing core causes of corruption. He will train youth to make short films that identify, highlight, and help solve accountability issues.
“We had already established film festivals in Pakistan but with the support of the Accountability Lab we’ve now developed our first film school, with students learning about how to make films about participation, accountability and social change in their communities. We’re excited – this has the potential to transform youth engagement in Pakistan.” – Abrar
