KCFF24 Opening Night The Queen of My Dreams

As the curtain rises on the Kingston Canadian Film Festival, movie enthusiasts are cordially invited to immerse themselves in the world of cinema with KCFF24’s Opening Night selection. Fawzia Mirza’s debut feature film is a vibrant tapestry of emotion and culture, weaving a tale of the intricate ties that bind us. The film presents a rich narrative that explores the delicate relationship between Mariam (played by Nimra Bucha) and her daughter Azra (portrayed by Amrit Kaur), set against the backdrop of familial tension and cultural tradition. The sudden death of Azra’s father in Pakistan serves as the catalyst for a profound journey into the heart of family dynamics, challenging long-held beliefs and prejudices. This is more than just a movie; it’s a cinematic celebration of life’s unanticipated turns and the surprising revelations that come with seeing our parents through a new lens, underscored by a homage to the golden era of Indian cinema.

But the experience extends beyond the screen. Your ticket is a golden key to the full film festival glamour. Revel in the exclusive Opening Night Gala where each guest is greeted not only with the promise of a captivating film but with the warmth of one complimentary drink and the thrill of an entry into our Gala raffle. This is a chance to not only witness the magic of storytelling through Fawzia Mirza’s eyes but to be part of a community celebrating the raw and resonant power of film. Don’t let this be the story that got away. For more information and to secure your tickets to this unforgettable evening, be sure to visit the Kingston Canadian Film Festival’s official website. Join us, as we set the stage for a festival that promises to captivate, inspire, and entertain.
