The Beirut International Film Festival

With support from our foundation, the 7th International Beirut Film Festival took place in October 2006 against all odds. Cultures of Resistance network and its Make Films Not War initiative was supported by Marco Muller, director of the Venice Film Festival, who courageously came to Beirut as the head of an international delegation of film professionals. Make Films Not War urged others in the film industry to attend the Beirut Film Fest to express their solidarity with the victims of Israel's 2006 war on Lebanon, believing that it would provide a vital boost to Beirut's morale. The festival took place as an affirmation of the resilience of the people of Lebanon, as well as an act of cultural resistance to war.
