The theme of our Film festival is Exile. “Exilfilmfestivalen Malmö” is a collaboration between ISS (Iranian-Swedish solidarity Association) and International Exile film Festival in Gothenburg which both are non-profit organizations. The goal is to give the Öresund region (Copenhagen, Malmö) its own adaptation of The Exile Film Festival. The project is funded by Malmö city Culture council. The films screened in the festival are either made by filmmakers in exile, films that are banned in the countries where they were produced, films on the theme of exile and films treating uncomfortable current subjects. The goal of the festival is to be a link between the audience and exile filmmakers and artists, to give these artists the opportunity to find a new platform and new audience and raise an understanding among the audience of what, exile, oppression and exclusion can mean. The first “Exilfilmfestivalen Malmö” was held in 2013 and was well received by the media and the audience, and our guest directors Sahra Karimi and Arash Riahi where intertwined by Swedish morning papers and national TV. The 2016 “Exilfilmfestivalen Malmö” “borderless Minds” will be held between the 9-14th of February in the newly opened Panora Cinema in Malmö. During 6 days there will be film screenings, art exhibition, workshops and Q&As, in different places in Malmö.
