Xian – China (15 June 2017): A consultative meeting between Team APFF and Team IYDF was concluded on a positive commitment of mutual cooperation exploring common grounds in diverse cultures of Asian societies. The meeting resolved that film remains one of the the major mediums of cultural communication at the grassroots’ level.
Team APFF presented Ajrak to the Team IYDF celebrating the traditional cultural connections. Ajrak (a block-printed shawl) is believed to be a contemporary version of traditional textile design of Indus Valley, resembling the piece of cloth worn by the sculpture of a priest-king excavated at Mohenjo-daro (2500 BCE), Sindh, Pakistan. Ajrak is still worn by both women and men of the Indus Valley with a profound sense of cultural pride.
