To raise attention about the rights of the inhabitants of the Ecuadorian Amazon, Fundación Pachamama organises a travelling film festival in different cities in Ecuador. These cities, including Guayaquil, Cuenca, Ibarra and Manta, are located outside of the Amazon. In each of these cities, six films will be screened about the conservation of the Amazon and the survival of its indigenous peoples. In addition, during these three-day festivals, debates and photo exhibitions about the human rights violations in the Amazon are organised. The organisers expect to reach at least 3,750 urban citizens. Movies that Matter also supported an earlier mobile cinema project of Fundación Pachamama, Cine Amazonico, which took place in February 2012.
This project is supported by Movies that Matter. Movies that Matter supports human rights film screenings worldwide. More information on the Movies that Matter Support Programme can be found at www.moviesthatmatter.nl/international.
