Honour for Huma Qureshi at Vancouver Film Fest
Huma Qureshi has been chosen as an ambassador of cross cultural cinema by Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival. “Over the years, Huma has taken the road less travelled with her unconventional film choices. Owing to her filmography, the actor has been invited as a Guest of Honour at the film festival, which will be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday,” says a source. Huma will also meet the members of the All Ladies League’s Women Economic Forum.
“Huma will be part of a panel discussion followed by a screening of her international film Viceroy’s House. She’ll also interact with local students during a seminar at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver,” adds the source.
Huma who is “deeply honoured with the invitation”, says, “Globally and in India, there is a lot of conversation about woman empowerment and changing attitude towards woman. I can’t wait to be there and interact with the members of the All Ladies League Economic Forum.”
