Offline: Baghdad

Offline: Baghdad was a film festival in Italy and the first of its kind. The festival featured 27 movies, with 16 Iraqi directors, fixers, and journalists in attendance, and an audience of over 300 people. Offering a rare combination of Iraqi artists and international viewers, it lived up to its goal to be "not just another film festival." One of the main aims of Offline: Baghdad was to bring the public directly into contact with Iraqis and allow both parties to engage in debates to deepen understandings of today's Iraq.

Our foundation helped make this event possible by bringing Iraqi directors, film professionals, and journalists to the festival, allowing them to further public discussion about the reality that faces their country.
