Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 10 Nov,2015
The Tyre International Short Film Festival is organized to promote cinema in the South of Lebanon; to bridge gaps between communities, countries and people. During the festival, short movies of all kinds will be screened, accompanied by Q&A sessions with directors and actors. You can help us to achieve this goal, as a very important step to promote a culture of arts and peace in the South of Lebanon.
It's been a year and half now since we (a group of young people from the South of Lebanon - from the old city of Tyre to be more precise -) decided to pursue our dreams and to promote a cultural uprising to end a long period of creative low. By organizing art related activities and by reopening Cinema Al Hamra we're building this: a theater that was steeped in oblivion for 27 years. The opening of Cinema Al Hamra was followed by the first edition of The International Theater Festival of Tyre where 11 theatre companies performed for an audience that was longing for such developments. Building on this energy and optimism, a beautiful group of young people continues to organize activities for the people of the city and the surrounding refugee camps. The concerts, classes, film screenings and street performances are becoming the talk of the town.
So far, all these activities are organized with very limited financial support and mostly with a lot of energy of the team as the driving force behind the theatre. To take this all a step further we need more support, especially for the second edition of the Tyre International Short Film Festival that will take place in December of this year.
