We are working in partnership with the University of Coventry’s Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations as well as the UN Regional Information Centre in Brussels on an exciting new project to launch Cine UNACov. It will follow the model of Ciné-ONU, one of the United Nations most successful outreach initiatives in Europe.
It involves the screening of a film relevant to a specific UN issue, followed by a Q&A with reputed speakers – either connected to the film, to the issue in question, or to both. Each event will offer the opportunity to watch highly acclaimed, award-winning documentaries or feature films then address questions to senior UN officials and other personalities. Cine-ONU screenings have been held in many cities including London, Vienna, Madrid, Geneva and Helsinki. Now we are planning to bring them to Coventry.
Plans for Cine UNACov are at an early stage and the date and time of this launch are provisional. If this launch is successful then we hope they will become a regular feature of our winter programme.
