The Wathann Film Festival #5

Do not miss this year's edition of the Wathann Film Festival which is the first ever launched film festival in the history of Myanmar.

It takes place between 9 and 13 September at the Waziya Cinema in downtown Yangon (close to Sakura tower).

The major objectives of the festival are:
- Strengthening the media community in Myanmar and raising standards of critical filmmaking
- Creation of a platform where Myanmar professional filmmakers can expose, compare and discuss their work
- Educating the Myanmar public by screening high quality films in the field of documentary, fiction and experimental films in order to strengthen their critical eye and in order to foster a democratic approach to society.
