2nd British Film Festival in Kurdistan Region, 23 - 25 February

Erbil, Kurdistan Region, KRG – The Kurdistan Region (KRG) is to host the second British Film Festival in partnership with representatives from the British film industry in February 2013 with a programme of films to be screened in the region’s capital city of Erbil. The festival is a celebration of British Cinema and the growing relationship between the Kurdistan Region and the UK.

The second edition will once again showcase a selection of new and classic British films in the Royal Mall cinema in Erbil (opened only at the end of last year). The BFFK remains committed to helping foster the nascent film industry in Kurdistan and a new addition to the programme this year will be the inclusion of both shorts and some medium-length movies by Kurdish filmmakers, such as the acclaimed Chaplin of the Mountains, which will screen alongside the British features.

The timing of this year’s festival precedes a week-long commemoration in mid-March of the Anfal/Halabja campaigns that wrought such devastation in the Region in the late 1980s. The organisers are delighted to have the honour of screening the Kurdistan premier of Kulajo, a powerful documentary by the distinguished British film-maker Gwynn Roberts. Kulajo tells the story of what happened to one Kurdish village attacked during the Anfal campaign, capturing the courage and resilience, as well as the suffering, of ordinary people during those terrible events.

Founded by members of the British Consulate-General in Erbil, and Phil Hunt, of London-based Bankside Films, the British Film Festival of Kurdistan aims to bring together people from Kurdistan and the UK in a mutual appreciation of each other’s creative talents and to reinforce the special bonds Britain has had with Kurdistan since the first Gulf War in 1991.

“It’s an extraordinary and exciting relationship that is being built here between our industry and the people of Kurdistan,” says Phil Hunt. “We hope that the films we are screening will inspire and entertain in a way that will encourage local filmmakers and artists to engage with cinema and show us their own stories. The country has changed so dramatically over the last two decades. It’s time that those stories were brought to the screen.”

“The Kurdish people have endured decades of repression and isolation. But now they are determined to catch up with the rest of the world, reflected in huge economic growth and an impressive record of development in recent years” says Hugh Evans, the British Consul-General in Erbil.

“We in the UK are proud to be forging ever closer and more diverse ties – political, commercial, education and cultural - with the people and government of this fascinating Region. Holding a film festival of this scale and ambition reflects the strength of collaboration between Kurdish and British film enthusiasts. It also taps into a deep Kurdish interest in the creative arts. Last year over 2000 people came to see British films such as Senna, The Queen and Mark Cousins’ The First Movie. This year we have an even more exciting range of movies for people to enjoy. We hope this festival can become a long term fixture and will help encourage the emergence of an indigenous Kurdish cinema with international appeal.”

Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman, the Kurdistan Regional Government’s UK Representative, who is also involved in the festival, says, “Erbil and other Kurdish cities had cinemas at one time and the older generation used to enjoy watching films on the big screen. But the cinemas were shut down at times of war and eventually fell into disuse. The new generation is hungry to see good films and to have a cinema-going experience. This festival will not only bring some of the best British films to them, but also give people the thrill of seeing films on the big screen.”

In Erbil, Movie Lovers Applaud Return of the Silver Screen

Posted Image

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Only three days after returning to Erbil from their home in the Netherlands, Ibrahim Osman’s children wanted their father to take them to the movies.
“My children wanted to go to the movies so badly that they even asked me to take them back to the Netherlands,” Osman said, after he inquired about a cinema in Erbil and was told there was none.

But that is not a problem anymore: Just recently the Crystal Cinema reopened in Erbil after shutting down 12 years ago, and a Kurdish businessman has built four movie theaters inside a new shopping mall.

On the opening day of the Crystal Cinema all tickets for Shirin, a French-Kurdish love story, were quickly sold out and many people stood in the aisles.

“I was happy to see Erbil much transformed since I was last here,” said Osman, who returned to Erbil from 15 years in the Netherlands. “But I was surprised to see there was not a single cinema here, and even the old ones had been shut down,” he said.

At the screening for Shirin, with whistles and applause at favorite scenes, movie lovers poured out their enthusiasm for films on the big screen.

“People used to say the reason there are no cinemas in Erbil is that no one goes to the movies,” said a satisfied moviegoer. “But today we saw that people are hungry for cinema,” he said.

Hassan Ali, the director of Shirin, said that the reopening of cinemas in Erbil will help boost the Kurdish film industry.

“Shirin is my second movie. Unfortunately, after the cinemas were closed down there was nowhere to screen our films, even though my films had won many international awards,” said Ali, adding that he was behind the Crystal Cinema’s renovation, investing money from his films and loans.

Crystal was the newest cinema to open in Erbil in 1993, only to shut down seven years later. The first cinema in Erbil was Salahaddin, which opened in 1946, followed by Cinema Hamra and Cinema Sirwan in 1965.

“Watching a film in the cinema has a special pleasure,” a moviegoer told Rudaw, adding that nothing else could quench his thirst for the big screen.

Ali, who is working with Kurdistan’s ministry of culture, said that in 2012 alone more than 18 short and feature films were produced in Kurdistan.

“We will try to show those films in Kurdistan’s new cinema theaters, and reintroduce the people of Kurdistan to cinema,” he said.

He added that more than 40 Kurdish films have been shown at international venues in the past 15 years, but that “most Kurds have only heard the names of those films.”

“From now on, it will all change,” he said.

Kurdish-German Actor Hopes for Roles in Kurdish Cinema

28/4/2013 12:14:00

By MEHMET SEBATLI

COLOGNE, Germany - Mustafa Alin is something of a celebrity in Germany for his acting roles, but remains virtually unknown among the Kurdish public, though he is a Kurd himself.
Alin is famous for his role in Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten (Good Times, Bad Times) a TV soap opera on RTL TV channel, where he plays the role of an aggressive Turkish character named Mesut Yildiz.
Yildiz, a violent and disrespectful character in the show, is particularly noted for his vulgar language and aggression toward women.
But in real life, Alin is polite and shy. He is tall and physically fit, and in 2004 won second place in boxing in Germany.
Regarding his acting role, Alin says, “Many producers see me fit for a violent and aggressive character, and I do not mind playing that role.
“When you act, it is not important what character you are given; it is important to play the character and show the character in the best possible way,” Alin told Rudaw.
Alin is well known among the German media and public, but little is known about him among the Kurdish public. He says he is also not very well informed about Kurdish cinema and does “not know Kurdish actors and producers.”
But he adds that he would like to get to know Kurdish cinema and “to establish connections with some of the Kurdish producers, if circumstances permit.”
Alin studied postal services in school, but never used his degree. After school he took up boxing.
Watching Turkish director Yilmaz Guney’s movies encouraged Alin to get into acting. In 2006, he left boxing and enrolled in acting school where he graduated in 2009.
In 2011, Alin was asked to join the TV soap opera where he is currently acting.
But he has never had a chance to play in any cinematic movies.
“If I am offered a chance, I would like to play in the cinematic movies, especially if I find the script interesting,” he added. “It does not matter if the character given to me is a good or bad character; I want to play different characters like Johnny Depp.”
He says he would really like to particularly play a role in a Kurdish or Turkish movie about trafficking between Turkey and Germany.

Born in 1977 in Germany, Alin comes from a Kurdish Yezidi family south of Batman, Turkey. His family returned to Kurdistan and lived in Veransehir, Turkey, for 10 years, but then returned to Germany. After starting his acting career, Alin moved to Berlin and has lived there since 2010.
