U.S. Embassy sponsors FilmAct Festival

Baku, February 6, AZERTAC

A closing ceremony of the FilmAct short-documentary film festival has been held at the Landmark Hotel.

The three-day event was organized by Y-PEER Azerbaijan, with financial support from the U.S. Embassy and Baku IdeaLab. The project provided a number of young people with opportunities to improve their film-making skills and increased social networking and community building in a creative way.

Y-PEER Azerbaijan experts trained 45 young people in Balakan, Barda, and Baku in September-November 2018, who by using their skills developed plans and shot ten films.
