The Project is designed as 3-months cinema and film-making trainings by experienced and expert trainers with the participation of 25 young women trainees living in Diyarbakir, whom are interested in cinema but do not have access to cinema education and film-making process due to socio-economic constraints, and existing gender inequality. After trainings, trainees will shoot short movies and documentaries on previously determined themes’ such as human and women rights, social peace and gender equality. Films will be shown both in various places of Diyarbakir and Helsinki, as well as in national and international film festivals. 5 seminars will be organized during the Project, 4 of them will be on “4D strategy” of ALF; and 1 will be on the exclusion of women from social and cultural life, gender domination and importance of women’s existence in the cinema. Total duration of the Project is 9 months.
The aim of the Project is to support regional and cultural initiatives from a gendered perspective, to give deprived women necessary tools to express themselves, to change male-dominated power structure, to promote respect, dialogue, diversity, and awareness within the society; and to contribute to social development.
