Hameedia will be hosting the opening
dinner for the International Film Festival of Colombo on 2 September
2014. The film festival which will take place from 2 to 7 September and is a first
of its kind to be held in Sri Lanka. The
opening event will bring together the Film Directors’ Guild, festival participants
and audience members in an effort to celebrate a new era of Sri Lankan and
international cinema. 
The International Film Festival of Colombo, was launched
in association with the Okinawa International Movie Festival of Japan, to
further promote the development of the film and cinema industry in Sri
Lanka.  Although Sri Lankan cinema has
gained recognition at various independent festivals, the country had not been
able to establish an effective film festival of its own. In order to fill this
void, the International Film Festival of Colombo was launched to help take Sri
Lankan cinema to new heights. 

Commenting on the opening dinner, Fouzul
Hameed, Managing Director, Hameedia stated, “It is a great honour to be hosting
the opening dinner for the International Film Festival of Colombo. Benchmarked
as the leading menswear specialist in Sri Lanka, we are associated with many
international events such as Asia Fashion Week. Supporting such events is
important to us as it allows fashion and other creative industries to reach an
international market. Hameedia strives not only to transform the way men dress
in Sri Lanka, but also aims to have an international impact.”  

Continuously setting the benchmark in the fashion industry, Hameedia, Sri
Lanka’s leading menswear specialist firmly believes in supporting creativity in
Sri Lanka by partnering with prestigious events such as the International Film
Festival of Colombo. Hameedia blends excellent craftsmanship with innovation to provide high
quality clothes for gents. With a network of over 30 outlets across Sri Lanka,
Hameedia has also been growing its presence globally with outlets in the Maldives
