SofaCinema launches filmtour in Gambia

October 10, 2017

 

Today marks the start of a SofaCinema project supported by Movies that Matter. SofaCinema is Gambia’s first and only mobile community cinema. The purpose of SofaCinema is to work as a platform for dialogue and learning through screening films that touch on human rights issues relevant to the local communities, but also by community-based filmmaking where the process of filmmaking about locally relevant issues is as central as the final product and screening of the film.

This joint project will last for about 10 months and entails 50 screenings around Gambia of films that focus on human rights issues that are a priority to the Gambian context.
