“The Moscow Kurdish Film Festival has attracted great interest from many people for three years. Not only has the diaspora been interested in the festival, but it also received a great deal of attention from the film industry last year,” she noted.

“In addition to introducing the audience to cinema, we intend to introduce diverse Kurdish culture. Last year, we were able to open an exhibition of contemporary Kurdish art,” she then added.

Last year, 41 films from Iran, Turkey, Syria, Greece, Iraq, Spain, Sweden, and Germany were shortlisted for the film festival.

Six feature films, seven documentaries, and 28 short films shot between 2020 and 2023 were screened at the festival.
