UNAMI Human Rights Office holds 3x3 Film Festival in Kalar District

On 23 April 2019, about one hundred students of the Polytechnic Institute in Kalar District took part in the 3x3 Film Festival organized by the UNAMI Human Rights Office.

After kicking off in Baghdad, the 3x3 Festival continues with screenings throughout Iraq of 12 short films dealing with challenges faced by minorities in Iraq and wider human rights issues. All the films were made by Iraqis from around the country and each film had a female writer, director, or lead character.
After the screening at the Polytechnic Institute campus in Kalar, students engaged with an expert panel including the Dean of the Polytechnic Institute, Dr. Chia M. Hassan, the Director of the Garmiyan Office of the Kurdistan Region Independent Board of Human Rights, Mr. Xabat Rasheed, and the Director of Talented Women Organization, Ms. Shno Osman.
The films sparked discussion about the need for greater protection of minorities, women’s rights in the home, in the workplace, and in government, and the need to prosecute crimes committed by ISIL.
