Cannes 2022: Joyland Team Represents Pakistan At Film Festival [Pictures]

The team Joyland is making Pakistan proud as they represent the country at the prestigious  Cannes Film Festival.

Cannes’ Instagram shared pictures of the Joyland team dressed in a summery palette and flowy fabrics. As well as sharing sneak peeks of the event on Instagram.

From director Saim Sadiq dressed in a salmon pink suit paired with a white t-shirt, to Sarwat donning a white, puffed-sleeved dress and strappy black heels. Meanwhile, actress Alina Khan, who starred in Darling, opted for a pink crop top with butterfly details and paired it with a yellow skirt. She tossed her into a high ponytail, again, very summery.

Similarly, Sana Jafri donned a flowy lilac dress, paired with a yellow and lilac scarf. While actor Ali Junejo wore a grey suit with a light pink dress shirt. Conservative but still with a summer pop.

Starlet Sania Saeed went for a vibrant dark blue and pink floral outfit, complete with silver embellishments.

It’s a huge achievement for the Pakistani film to make the cut for feature films at Cannes. Only 14 feature films are selected annually for the film festival.

Previously, Shamoon Abbasi’s Durj made its way to the prestigious film festival. While a Qandeel Baloch biopic Wakhri also made the cut. On the other hand, starlets like Armeena Rana Khan have attended the film festival but for foreign projects, not Pakistani creations.

Abdullah Siddiqui curated the movie’s motion-picture soundtrack.
