Jiyan Lisboa, a voluntary non-profit organization, is about to organize the First Festival of Kurdish Cinema and Arts, the fruit of a common passion for our multiculturalism. Support us in the execution of this festival.

A JOURNEY BY THE CURDISTAN

The main purpose of the Kurdish and Portuguese Cultural Association is to deepen the ties between the Portuguese and Kurdish communities, both in Portugal and in the world, and from this came the idea of ​​a film and arts festival.

Like other multicultural cities such as London, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, Hamburg, Montreal or Paris, which have hosted several Kurdish festivals in the last two decades, we also want to bring to Lisbon a little of Kurdish history, language, arts, films and traditions of the different communities spread across four countries: Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.

The main focus of this first festival is dedicated to Kurdish mothers, who should receive a fair homage for the daily struggle to preserve a common collective memory of their traditions.

We intend to leave a mark and a work that will be expanded in time and space, since it is intended to reach different parts of the country, aiming at the involvement of all without geographical or social borders. The annual festival also aims to give attention to activities other than the cinema, such as various workshops and debates open to the general public, creation of artistic and educational residences, bets on cultural exchanges, as well as gastronomic itineraries in various places of the city where they can enter in contact with Curdish Food & Culture.

We are going to show ..

  • 3 feature films
  • 2 documentaries
  • 2 short

and we will also have ..

  • 1 exhibition of various artists who created pieces based on Kurdish art and culture
  • 1 exhibition of Kurdish artists
  • 1 insertion of works of art donated to us
  • 1 exposure based on refugees

and we will still have ..

  • 1 reading in Kurdish of a story for children in Portuguese
  • 1 language office
  • 1 Celebration of Newroz where the donations made will revert to the refugees, all in direct collaboration with UMAR, the first women's rights movement

WE WILL TAKE YOU A JOURNEY FOR THE COLORFUL CURDISTAN
