With the festival stretching for three days some of the notable movies to be shown include Burka Avenger , Jinnah , Ho Mann Jahan , Aik Thi Mariam and Chalay Thay Saath to name a few .

It would very interesting to see if the film festival will be able to attract Romanian public or mostly expats from Pakistan and India attend the festival.
