A terrible terrorist attack happened in Ankara some days ago, but the world knows about it just because it happened in the country’s capital.
Every day explosions, shootings, arrests, massacres take place in the South-East of Turkey, where the situation is like a real war.
We don’t know a lot about it by media – from TV to Facebook – that are being censored. But what we know is that a lot of people in Turkey want freedom of expression, of information, and they want peace.
Documentary films are extraordinary alternative source of information.
No wonder that documentaries – and documentary film festivals – are the first ones to be under the eye of the government censorship.
That’s why Festivals like BIFED are so important now. Because they take a stand.
The festivals of Green Film Network recognize and support BIFED from every country.
