Bir Duino Human Rights Film Festival in Kyrgyzstan

Bir Duino Human Rights Film Festival in Kyrgyzstan

April 15, 2018

From 16 to 25 April 2018, the Bir Duino human rights film festival will present documentary cinema in remote areas of Kyrgyzstan.  By screening human rights documentary films in locations like At-Bashi (Naryn), Kemin, Issukul, Jalal-Abad and Batken, the festival intends to strengthen civic participation in these remote regions and raise awareness on human rights. A wide range of communities, local governmental organizations, journalists and filmmakers, gather and debate on the burning issues of justice, corruption, fair governance, and participation in decision-making processes. At least 2000 visitors are expected to attend this important outreach programme.

Bir Duino Human Rights Film Festival is one of the 21 projects that were sponsored by Movies that Matter in 2017. Click here to read more about our other supported projects of this year.
