With features, documentaries and short films presented over a five-day period, the festival will also give guests the chance to discuss the films in Q&A sessions with their makers and directors.

In previous years, films have looked at the political challenges faced by Kurds in different states, including Syria and Iraq.

Kurdish hospitality has also been recreated throughout the festival, with Kurdish snacks, music and carpets as well as free tea and coffee (in accordance with Kurdish tradition) served before each film. Kurdish-style entertainment usually takes place at various intervals throughout the festival.

All films are subtitled in English.
