Out of competition - Theme Day

Each year, Tripoli Film Festival implements a Theme Day during the Festival period in Tripoli, where 2 to 4 documentaries are showcased with panel discussions after each screening.

For this year we have chosen “Resilience & Reconciliation – Lessons from Tripoli” as a Theme for our Out of Competition Day that is expected to occur on April 25th, 2018 in Rabita Sakafiyah - Tripoli.

Tripoli has long suffered from instability due to the ongoing clashes between Jabal Mohsen and Tebbeneh. This instability peaked between 2008 and 2014. During this period of unease, the civil society in Tripoli was keen on retaining the city’s energy. The significance of these efforts was displayed in 2013 during the peak of the clashes and specifically after the bombing of two mosques “Salam and Takwa”... Still after 2014 the civil society continued its main aim which was to establish conflict resolution and reconciliation between the different opposing parties in Tripoli.

The Theme Day will shed a light on some of the initiatives done by the civil society in Tripoli during that period and offer a platform for the audience to discuss and elaborate the success of reaching their goal.

For the movies we will choose from the documentaries produced locally by 2 initiatives that were working on the field in Tripoli for the last 5 years and still: “Coalition Of campaign Against Violence” and “Roadmap to Reconciliation in Tripoli”, some of these documentaries were supported by USAID – OTI others were supported by UNDP.
