Two film festivals were organized by Matteela and supported and funded by ASR from April 24 to 28, 2002 and 27th March to 4th April 2004. It was arranged to give a chance to the Audience to see documentary films on various social issues in the South Asian region. Showcasing the best of women directors of Pakistan, the festival also included documentaries of Traveling Film South Asia and the pick of Kara film Festival. Matteela attempted to bring light on the music and poetry from across South Asia. The festival “Lahore Moving Images” packed the halls for five consecutive days each year. Such was the response that the organizers were totally amazed at the interest that Lahoris showed in documentaries from South Asia.
