Îsal di beşa “Sînema Cîhanê”de, dervay pêşbirkê, hijmarek zêde ya filmên herî serkeftî yên van dş salên dawî tên nîşandan. Em kêfxweşin ku di nava wan de, berhemên dawî yên sînemakarên mezin yên mina: (Michel Haneke, Abbas Kirostami, Emil Askalente, Michel Vinterberg) jî cih digrin. Di beşa pêşbirkêya filmên navdewletî de, giranî li ser  berhemên derhênerên ciwane. Derhênerê Hingarî “BellaTar”, di sînema dinyayê de xwedî destnivîsek taybete. Di bin serokatiya vî hostayê mezin de, Îsal Juriyek navdewletî wê li ser navê sînemakarê Kurd yê nemir “Yilmaz Guney”, yekem car xelatê “Baştirîn derhênerê ciwan” bide. Yilmaz Guney bi filmê xwe û jiyana xwe ya awartê ve, tenê nebû destpêka sînema Kurdî, her wisa jî, di sînema cîhanê de, li pey xwe şo-

pek kûr hişt. Em hêvî dikin nivşên nû, bi rêya vê xelatê, her sal carek din, Guney li bîr bînin. Îsal berhemên dawî yên sînemakarên Kurd ji çwar perçeyên kurdistanê, di beşa “Sînema Kurdî” de tên nîşandan. Piraniya van filman, yekem car derdikevin hemberî temaşevanên xwe. Herweha berhemên filmsazên Kurd yên ku li dîyaspora dijîn; di Fêstîvalê de cihek taybet digirin. Filmê Derhênerê Kurd û Norwecî, Hîşam Zeman “Berî Befirbarînê”, îsal dibe filmê vekirinê. Beşek mezinê vî filmî li devera Behdînan hatiye kişandin û ekterên serekî yên vî filmî jî li Duhokê hatin dîtin. Piştî serkefitnek cîhanî, tîma “Berî Befirbarînê” vedigere cihê rêwitiya wan destpêkiribû. Belê! Heza  Filme Fêstîvala Duhokê ya Navdewletî ji kûrahîya dîrokê tê. Ji ber ku ev axa birîndar, bingeha şaristaniyek herî kevnar ya mirovatiyê ye. Em hêvîdarin ev Fêstîvala nasnameya herêmê ya  kulturî careke din li bîr bixe û bibe pira biratî, aşitî û toleransê.

Welcome to Duhok IFF

B

eing in only its second year, the Duhok International Film Festival is already rapidly growing with new sections and more international guests to come. In the World Cinema programme the festival shows a wide selection of award-winning films in and out of competition, which will give the Duhok audience the unique opportunity to discover master pieces that they otherwise wouldn’t see in cinema. The festival is very proud to present the latest films of renowned filmmakers like Michael Haneke, Abbas Kiarostami, Amat Escalante and Thomas Vinterberg, which will be screened for the first time in Kurdistan. The big part of the World Cinema programme consists of films from new talents, who are young filmmakers, but who do already have a significant own style in their filmmaking. The jury of the International Competition in this programme will be presided by Bela Tarr, the well-known Hungarian director, who is famous for his special film-handwriting. Two awards will be given by this jury: the New Talent Award for the Best First or Second Feature-Length Film and the Yilmaz Güney Award for the Best International Film. Yilmaz Güney’s name does not only stand for the beginning of Kurdish cinema. His films have

influenced a whole generation of filmmakers in Kurdistan and abroad. By naming the award after him the festival hopes, that also younger generations of filmmakers remember him and carry his name out into the world. In the Kurdish Cinema programme the festival will present the latest films that were produced in the four parts of Kurdistan. Most of them will have their world premiere in Duhok, which we are very happy about. Of course, also the films that were made by Kurdish filmmakers who live in Diaspora have their particular place in the programme. Before Snowfall by the Kurdish-Norwegian director Hisham Zaman, is one of them and will be the opening film of this year’s festival. A big part of this film was shot in the Bahdinan region, and the main actors are from Duhok City. So after a huge success in many international film festivals, the film team will come back to the point were they once started. All that is to say: Yes! The festival is deeply linked to its history where it has its roots, since its sad soil is the ground of one of the most ancient human civilisations. We wish that this festival reminds everybody of the cultural identity of this region and that it will be a bridge for peace and tolerance.

ya hêjayî xwe bi sînemayê bê dayin û saziyeke mezin jê re bê avakirin ji bo ku bikare karên mezin derxe holê û rola xwe ya bi bandûr bilîze. Bêgoman sînema yek ji riyên herî bi bandûr û lezgîn yên gihandina her peyamekê ji bo cîhanê û mirovahiyê ye, lewra em pir bi qîmet û biha li giringiya sînemayê dinêrin û bawerin ku sînema dikare xizmeteke mezin ya doza gelê Kurdistanê bike û ji deriyê herî fereh bigihîne cîhanê. Dûbare pîrozbahî û destxweşiyê li organîzator û beşdarên Fêstîvalê dikim, hêvîdarim bikaribe berhemên sînemayî yên jêhatî nîşan bide û sal bi sal pêş ve biçe û cihê xwe di rêza Fêstîvalên mezinên cîhanê de bigire.

I

would like to warmly congratulate all the organizers, supervisors, and participants of the Second Duhok International Film Festival. I wish you great success in all of your activities at this event. A significant number of countries, including our neighbors and countries from all around the world, are participating in the festival by entering their films. I hope that this festival becomes another step toward further expanding the film culture and the love of cinema in Kurdistan. I also hope that this festival will serve as an incentive and a motivation for organizing and producing bigger cinematic events and productions in our country. There is no doubt that film is among the most effective and fastest means of conveying a message to the international community. That is why we consider the importance of cinema with

a great deal interest and value. We believe that film can provide a great service to the cause of the Kurdish people and can effectively introduce this cause to the world in the most effective manner. Therefore, we extend full support to cinematic activities in Kurdistan. We believe that the importance of film must be recognized in all fields and that a large institution to promote such activities must be established and play a role in making proper cinematic productions. Once again, I congratulate you and praise the efforts of the organizers and the participants in this event. I hope that quality productions are shown and the festival advances more and more each year so that it finds its place among other such festivals held throughout the world. I wish you continued success.

ve ew Duhoke ya ku beriya 22 salan, di bindestî û bê zimanî û hejarî û zîndanê de dijiya. Beriya 22 salan kolan û taxên vê Duhokê birîndar û bê nasname bûn. Beriya 22 salan kamêre û foto û peyv û azadî qedexe bûn. Lê îro Duhok azade, bi zimanê xwe û peyvên xwe. Tax û kolanên wê hemû ji bo filmsazan bûyne lokêşin, çiya û deşt û nihalên wê ji bo filmên Kurdî û biyanî bûyne dîmenên balkêş û dilveker. Ew xelkê berxwedan kirî, ew xelkê kar û helwêst heyn, ji hejî fêstîvalekê ne ku li bajarê wan bihê pêkanîn. Bi xêr bên ji bo Duwemîn Filme Fêstîvala Duhokê ya Navdewletî, ku ev Fêstîvale sîmbola hembêzkirina xweşikî û bi hevrejiyan û pêşkeftinê ye. Em dilxweşin ku di van salên kêm de, Hikûmeta Herêma Kurdistanê piştevaniyek bê sînûr ji bo biyavê sînemayê kiriye, û ev piştevaniye bûye sedema wê yekê ku çendîn sînema-

karên Kurdistanê beşdarî Fêstîvalên cîhanê bibin. Dibe ku ew pencereya biçûk ya Herêma Kurdistanê vekirî û bi rêya sînemayê temaşay dunyayê kirî, hêdî hêdî dibe dergehek mezin ku em dunyayê li herêma Kurdistanê û bajêrê Duhokê mêhvan bikin. Em destxweşiyê li hemû sînemakaran dikin ku îro hûnin balyozên nasnameya me ya kelturî,herweha em destxwşiyê li her sînemakarekê vî welatî dikin ku bûye sedema mêhvankirina sînemakar û kar û berhem û kompaniyayên biyanî ji bo vî welatî. Li dawiyê Duhok ew pire ya ku Başûr û Bakûrê vî welatî bi hev re girêdide û dibe girngiyeka din ya vê Fêstîvalê. Em jî sozê didin, ka çewa me dergeh vekirin û alîkariya sînemakaran kir, ew dergeh vekirî be da ku sînemaya Kurdî ber bi cîhanîbûnê ve biçe. Dûbare bi xêr hatine Duhoka xweşik, û em ji dil û bi germî we hemûyan hembêz dikin

his is the same Duhok which twenty-two years ago was occupied, imprisoned, opressed, and lived in poverty. Twenty-two years ago, the streets and districts of Duhok were wounded and had no identity. Twenty-two years ago, cameras, photographs, speech and freedom were prohibited. However, Duhok is free today, with its own language and words. The streets and destricts have all become locations for filmmakers. The mountains, forests and cliffs have become atractive scenarios for Kurdish films and foreign as well. Those people who revolted and defended us deserve a festival to take place in their city. Welcome to the Second Duhok International Film Festival. We hope that this festival will be a symble of tolarance and co-existence. We are delighted that in the last few years, the Kurdistan Regional Government provided its unlimited support to cinema. It is reasonable to say that with this support, many Kurdish filmmakers have reached the international

stage and taken part in numerous festivals. It is obvious that the Kurdish Government has paved the way and opened a window, through that window they see the international cinema and gradually it becomes the opening gate to invite and embrace the world to Kurdistan and to the city of Duhok. Congratulations and well done to all filmmakers; You are our cultural ambassadors. I would like to thank all filmmakers of this country. Without you, we were not able to invite foreign filmmakers, workers, projects and companies to this country. Last but not least, as Duhok is the bridge that connects this country, from South to North, further significance is added to this Festival. In the same way that we opened this door and assisted filmmaking, we assure you that this door will remain open for Kurdish Cinema to become part of World Cinema. Once more; delightful Duhok welcomes all of You with open arms.

Herweha sînema alavek giringe ji bo dirustkirina têkiliyan û nasandna gelê Kurd ji cîhanê re, lewra me giringiyek taybet û yekcar mezin daye vî rengê hunerî û ta raddeyekê filmsazên me jî karîne ciyê xwe di nava sînemakarên cîhanê de bikin û bi rêya filmên xwe gelê Kurd di fêstîvalên cîhanî de bidin naskirin. Bê goman sînema li Kurdistanê karekî nû ye, belku sînemakar bi germî keftine di nava vî hunerî de û karîne karên baş encam bidin. Gelên pêşkeftî karîne ji aliyên

abûrî û civakî ve mifayek baş ji hunerê sînemayê werbigirin. Me Kurdan jî kelturek bi hêz heye û em dikarin mifay ji dastan û çîrokên Kurdî werbigirin. Merema me ji Filme Fêstîvala Duhokê ya Navdewletî ewe ku ev hevdîtine bibe nasnameyek rewşenbîrî û hunerî ji bo bajarê Duhokê bi taybetî û herêma Kurdistanê bi giştî, û bibe pêngavek û rêxweşkirinek ji bo filmên Kurdî ku bikevin di bazara cîhanî de. Herweha ev fêstîvale bibe derfetek ji bo şeydayên sînemayê û nûtirîn filmên cîhanî li deverê bên nîşandan. Em bi rêya vê festival rûyê şaristanî yê welatê xwe nîşanî xelkê biyanî bidin. Hêviya meye Duhok ji bo flimsazên herêmê û dewletên derdûr bibe bajarê sînemayê. Û ev fêstîvale bibe cejnek û hersal hezjêkerên hunerê sînemayê bendewarî vê cejnê bimînin.

he second Duhok International Film Festival is opening today with the direct support of the Prime Minister of the Kurdish Regional Government. Cinema is an actual power for accomplishing dreams of human beings. People can express their happiness and sorrows through this art form, which benefits from their daily life and images. It is also worth mentioning, that cinema is a crucial way to build good relations and in the case of our festival to introduce the Kurdish nation to the world. Therefore, we have a strong focus on Kurdish cinema in our programme, which enables our filmmakers on one hand to be part of international cinema and on the other hand to introduce their film culture in an international festival. Even though Kurdish directors are working very hard and have already received some major international awards, the art of cinema is still new in Kurdistan - unlike in the developped cinema cultures, who have been benefitting from this art form for a long time, not only socially, but also economically.

We Kurdish people do also have very good stories and tales, that we can rely on and which will make good films that represent our culture. Our aim with the Duhok International Film Festival, is to create a cultural identity for Duhok City as well as Kurdistan in general, and to pave the way for Kurdish films to find their way to the international market. Furthermore, this festival wishes to offer an opportunity to all cinema fans in the region to watch international films, that they would never be able to see elsewhere in a cinema. We want the festival to show the cultural identity of this region, so that everybody who comes and participates in this event can perceive it as a place of development. Finally, our hope is, that Duhok becomes the city of cinema and filmmakers in this region as well as the neighbouring countries, and that this festival becomes a cinematic fest, in which filmmakers will annually take part in. It is time to open ourselves to the thoughts, images, myths and stories of Kurdistan, to its culture, to its films. Welcome to Duhok!
