‘In Flames’, Pakistan’s official submission for the 96th Academy Awards, did not make the shortlist as results were announced on Thursday.

The horror movie, which was recently screened at the Red Sea International Film Festival, tells the story of how a mother and daughter’s lives are upended by entities from their history – both tangible and spectral.

‘In Flames’ to be Pakistan’s submission for Academy Awards 2024

It was directed by Zarrar Kahn and premiered at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight earlier in the year.

It was selected as Pakistan’s submission for the 96th Academy Awards by a committee chaired by filmmaker, Mohammed Ali Naqvi. Last year’s entry, ‘Joyland’, also did not make the shortlist, but received much critical acclaim on the festival circuit.
