Iraqi Short Films

In 2012, in co-production with the Iraqi Indpendent Film Centre and Iraq Al Rafidain, Human Film launched a short film academy program in Iraq.

 

In total, six short films were written and produced by students under the supervision of award winning producer and filmmaker, Mohamed Al-Daradji.

 

The purpose of this program was to grant emerging Iraqi filmakers the opportunity to express themselves creativley, encouraging and nurturing new talent whilst activley supporting the re-establishment and development of the Iraqi film industry.

 

The short films all focus on subjects surrounding childhood and growing up, addressing issues that children face growing up in Iraq. The films have screened internationally, boasting world and regional premieres at Berlin Internation Film Film Festival, London BFI International Film Festival, Dubai Film Festival and Tribeca.
