12th Eurasia International Film Festival to be held Sept. 24-30 in Almaty


The 12th Eurasia International Film Festival will be held Sept. 24-30 in Almaty. More than 80 films will be shown and Arab films of different genres will be screened for the first time in the event’s history.

The festival will be held under the motto “Love as the basis of human life and a path for the harmonisation of cultures” and will bring together countries of Asia, Europe and the global community.

“In the year that marks the 25th anniversary of the independence of Kazakhstan and the millennium of the city of Almaty, these seven days will become a meeting place and the beginning of creative projects for film professionals from all continents,” said festival president Rashid Nugmanov.

This year, the organisers plan to bring the festival to the streets by making it more democratic and popular. The part of the festival called The Love for the City will be screened in public places such as cafés and parks and will be free to attend.
