Cinema for Refugees

The Cinema for Peace Foundation is planning a mobile cinema project in the world's biggest refugee camps (e.g. Syria, Jordan, and Turkey) to bring psychological relief, stimulating information, and hope to young refugees.

 

We screened a children's film in Reyhanlı at a wonderful education center for refugee kids. Reyhanlı is a small town next to the Syrian boarder where over 100.000 Syrian refuges live. It was amazing to see how fascinated the children were by the movie. Afterwards we encourage them to build their own fantasy-characters with plasticine. It was amazing to see with how much enthusiasm they formed very imaginative figures themselves.

 

 

Since after 9/11 the non-profit organization Cinema for Peace has been aiming to influence through films the perception and resolution of global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time. One of our current prime goals is to ease the situation of children in crisis situations, to empower them and to raise awareness for their right to education.

 

CINEMA FOR REFUGEES

In response to the ever-worsening plight endured by children living in refugee camps, the Cinema for Peace Foundation has launched Cinema for Refugees. This initiative involves using the medium of film to provide psychological relief, entertainment and escapism to children living in refugee camps in places such as Syria, Jordan and Turkey.

 

The interest from small organizations which are providing the essential support for these children is enormous. We would like to support them with the basic technical equipment to ensure screenings on site once a month. Moreover, we would love to travel with art therapists and film-makers to some of the camps in order to offer the children a way of self-expression to help them to cope with their traumas.
