In 2019 filmmaker Saim Sadiq’s short film, titled Darling, had its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. Apart from this, the Pakistani short also bagged an Orizzonti Award for Best Short Film at the 76th Venice Film Festival 2019. And, it seems like the short film has another feather in its cap.

Recently Saim Sadiq took to social media to announce that Darling will be screened at the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW). “Super excited to have Darling’s Texas premiere at the most joyous festival of all,” he wrote on his official Instagram handle.

Besides the screening, the short has also been nominated for the Grand Jury Award at the SXSW Festival. The film festival, that celebrates raw innovation and emerging talent from behind and in-front of the camera, is slated to take place from March 13 to 21, 2020. According to SXSW’s official website, the festival features provocative dramas, documentaries, comedies, genre standouts and more.

Darling, which is set in a Lahori dance theatre, features Mehar Bano, Abdullah Malik and Nadia Afgan, as well as transgender actor Alina Khan from Lahore. With films such as Cake and Laal Kabootar to his name, Mo Azmi has served as the director of photography for the short film.
