UNHCR Refugee Film Festival in Tokyo 2nd Edition July 18 26 2007

Ringraziamo calorosamente l'Alto Commissariato delle Nazioni Unite per i Rifugiati per averci contattato, il direttore del Festival Kirill Konin ed i nostri amici giapponesi del Refugee Film Festival che ci rendono omaggio scrivendoci direttamente da Tokyo e parliamo del Secondo UNHCR Refugee Film Festival che si svolgerà a Tokyo dal 18 al 26 Luglio 2007.

In passato vi abbiamo tradotto in esclusiva interviste e dichiarazioni chilometriche, ma la seguente notizia di respiro internazionale rimarrà in inglese per i nostri lettori in tutto il Mondo.
In allegato trovate anche il bellissimo Trailer di Sierra Leone's The Refugee All Stars.


After the success of the 1st Refugee Film Festival in 2006, Refugee Film Festival is back in Tokyo with a new collection of award-winning features and documentary films about the lives, trials, and triumphs of people forced to leave their homes as a result of persecution and war.

RFF, part of UNHCR's year round commitment to raising awareness of the plight of the world's 33 million refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), brings you stories of hope, despair, and resilience from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Featured films include a unique selection produced by Sudanese refugees in Kenya, a retrospective tribute to Cambodian filmmaker and former refugee Rithy Panh, and a spotlight on the remarkable life of Chiune Sugihara, Japan's consul to Lithuania who helped save the lives of thousands of Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.

Film screenings will be followed by discussions and Q&A.
Come and witness the stories of courage!
