My dear friend Johanne Ihle is working on a project to set up a cinema in the Al-Kharaz refugee camp in Yemen, and she is looking for films to screen. Please send films, or spread the word:

Dear filmmakers of the world,

We are a small group of people who are about to set up a cinema in the Somali refugee camp Al-Kharaz in the Yemeni desert, where more than 13.000 refugees reside. The project will be realized in collaboration with the United Nations and ADRA, and aims at establishing a creative learning environment for both refugees and aid workers. Screenings will be integrated in the general educational program, but there will also be screenings of films of a more entertaining character. We believe that living images from all over the world are inspiring to everybody and we hope you will share your love for films and contribute to this project by donating one or more of your works.

We are looking for a wide range of films on all kinds of topics; documentaries, feature films, animations and cartoons. We will send you a contract when we hear from you, which states that your film will only be shown in Al-Kharaz refugee camp, and only as a part of this project.

We would be grateful if you would forward this message to your network, and appreciate advice and suggestions on how to improve the project.

For more information and donations please email: johanneihle@hotmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best wishes,

Johanne Haaber Ihle
