Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Maheen Sadiq earn an Emmy nod for 'Freedom Fighters'

Celebrated Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy after getting the Academy Awards under her credit has her eyes set for the Emmys.

The two-time Oscar winner along with Maheen Sadiq earned a nod for the 41st Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards for Best Feature Story in a News Magazine for their joint directorial Freedom Fighters.

Announcing the news on her Facebook, Sharmeen wrote: "Freedom Fighters is dedicated to Pakistan’s brave female fighters who are not afraid of facing adversity and are entrenched on the frontlines, to create a better tomorrow for their neighbors, community, and country.”

Freedom Fighters, produced by the SOC Films, is a part of a documentary-series encircling a group of three women breaking societal barriers and striving for equality in their country.

Earlier, the short film had also bagged a win for Best Short Documentary at the Tallgrass Film Festival.

The awards will be taking place virtually on September 21.
