#EquallyLoud - Filmmaking Workshops in Schools

The Little Art launched ‘Equally Loud’ project whereby young people from vulnerable and low-income communities are able to express and share their experiences through creative mediums, transforming the narrative of Pakistani women and girls from a purely rights-based discussion to a more personal and impactful dialogue.

Through LICFF Learn, which is workshop and training component of Lahore International Children Film Festival, The Little Art is conducting filmmaking workshops which are designed to explore gender experiences of children as well as equip them with basic filmmaking skills.


The workshops are being held in 10 schools in Lahore and Faisalabad. 4 Trust School campuses, 2 Garrison schools and Dreamland Public School in Lahore and Umul Madaris Model School, Dar-e-Arqam, and St. Catherine’s Girls High School in Faisalabad were a part of the workshops.


A total number of 340 children, boys and girls, took part in the workshops. Children are divided into groups of four, and each group produces a short film inspired by stories shared during the workshop. Some of the themes of films include breaking gender stereotypes, gender equality, issues of transport and access, body shaming, and equal opportunities.


The workshops are conducted by filmmakers and trainers Ammar Aziz, Fazal Ahmad, Abdul Basit and trainers and gender specialist Nida Mushtaq and Sehyr Mirza.
