UNAMI Human Rights Office holds 3x3 Film Festival at Cihan University in Duhok, Iraq

On 8 April 2019, about one hundred students of Cihan University in Duhok took part in the 3x3 Film Festival organised by the UNAMI Human Rights Office.

After kicking off in Baghdad, the 3x3 Festival continues with screenings throughout Iraq of 12 short films dealing with challenges faced by minorities in Iraq and wider human rights issues. All the films were made by Iraqis from around the country and each film had a female writer, director, or lead character.

After the screening at the Cihan University campus in Duhok students engaged with an expert panel including the Director of the Dohuk Office of the Kurdistan Region Independent Board of Human Rights, Dler Abdullah, the Head of Aland Organization in Dohuk, Sherzad Pir Mousa, and Captain Sajida Ahmed, from the Office of Combating Violence Against Women in Dohuk.

The films sparked discussion about the need for greater protection of minorities, accountability for ISIL crimes, especially against minorities, women’s rights in the home, in the workplace, and in government, and the right of all children to a quality education, including displaced and refugee children in camps.
