Cinémobile – A Cinematic Tour through the Southern Caucasus
Project implemented by the “Noosfera Foundation”
The project “Cinémobile Caucasus” is an educational program for youth that involved film screenings in different locations in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The screenings of carefully pre-selected documentaries and fiction films of the region took place in more than 40 cities of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The film screenings were attended by children, teenagers, students and adults and after each screening there were lively discussions and debates with the audience.
Cinémobile Caucasus – is an approach to peace, reconciliation and mutual understanding, by presenting interesting and entertaining films produced in the region.
Every film screening dealt with important topics like regional identity, democracy, the common history of the region, ecological or environmental issues, women issues, migration, and other themes which are not so often discussed and analyzed in schools, educational institutions or rural communities.
This project was very successful and got supported by “Movies That Matter” (The Netherlands), by the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation (German Marshall Fund) and by the Open Society Foundation (Georgia).
