Free-to-attend Kashmiri film screening in Luton - with donations raising funds for three charities
and live on Freeview channel 276
A free screening of a Kashmiri film will be taking place in Luton tomorrow – and helping raise money for charity.
‘Miki Kharo Kashmir’ (‘Take me to Kashmir’) will premiere at 5.30pm on Wednesday, October 25, at Cineworld in Luton. Entry is free but people are invited to donate to the three charities on the day – Luton Foodbank, Luton All Women’s Centre, and Kids Out.
The film tells the story of a young man who wishes to visit Kashmir, a country of his forefathers, in search of his roots and tranquillity. It was written, produced, and directed by Zafar Iqbal and Co-Produced by Kashmiri Productions UK CIC.
Mayor of Luton, Mohammed Yaqub Hanif said: “I am very grateful to Zafar Iqbal and his team for their collaboration on this landmark event which will help me to increase the awareness of my three chosen charities and also raise the profile of my hometown Luton. I am also very grateful to Cineworld for supporting us by holding this event to benefit our local charities.
"This will be the first event of its kind for the town and as mayor I am delighted to be able to bring such events to my hometown for the people of Luton. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone and thank my team for their tremendous work as always.”
Zafar added: “We are looking forward to bringing this historical movie to Luton in support of the mayor’s charities, entertain all, and meet the people of Luton."
