Twice a year Movies that Matter provides small grants to promote screenings of human rights films all over the world. Last month 15 new projects were selected, four of which are presented here:

Next week, the first-ever Queer Film Festival in Turkey will be held in Ankara. In Cambodia, community- and film-based outreach activities are organised of the documentary film We Want (u) to Know.
In the course of 2012 a series of screenings will take place in Iraq of the documentary “A Handful of Ash”, as a tool to raise awareness about the harmful effects of female genital mutilation.
In Ecuador a mobile festival will be organized in different Amazonian cities, screenings documentaries about the rights of indigenous peoples.
