SUPPORT FOR LEBANON
September 17th to 23rd
International Queer & Migrant Film Festival, Soura Film Fest, Cinéart Nederland, Lebanese NL, De Tweede Jeugd/Not Just Hummus and LAB 111 join hands to support Lebanon by celebrating its rich (cinema) culture with a selection of films, talks and food from the region.
In August the city of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, was devastated by major explosions, causing at least 181 deaths, 6000 injured, billions in property damage and leaving an estimated 300.000 people homeless. In its aftermath grief turned to widespread outrage with mass protests calling out the government’s corruption and dysfunction and demanding major political reforms.
All proceeds of these various events and film screenings will go directly to three trustworthy NGO’s.
