Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Pakistani cinema task force

Welcome to the Pakistani cinema task force. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration group to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Pakistani cinema, and the various sub-articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain suggestions and various resources for Wikipedians interested in improving the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, leave any inquiries on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

This is a joint task force run between WikiProject Films and WikiProject Pakistan.


Pakistani cinema may include not only domestic films, but also films made by Pakistani filmmakers outside of the country, films produced or co-produced by Pakistani companies, and foreign films shooting within Pakistan.
