Reel Intercultural Dialogue Films Now Available on DVD and Online

22-04-2004 (Paris)
Reel Intercultural Dialogue, a series of five short fiction films, has just been released on DVD and on-line and is now ready for international broadcasting and public exhibitions. Produced by UNESCO in collaboration with the cinema and television schools of Burkina Faso, India, Israel, Mexico and Romania, the films aim to increase intercultural understanding and to sensitise young people to tolerance, dialogue and peace.
While providing a reflection on the sources of conflict between communities and cultures, the films present alternatives to violence and are fostering cultural dialogue.

One of the objectives of Reel Intercultural Dialogue was to provide an opportunity to cinema and television schools to let their most talented students produce content aimed at a young audience that reflects local perspectives on global issues.

UNESCO and its partner, the International Association of Film and Television Schools (CILECT), are now distributing the DVDs to local and international media as well as to various educational institutions.

The films have no dialogue and are suitable for all publics. They are also available on-line at www.unesco.org/webworld/cc/reeldialogue
