Democracy-Themed Film Festival To Portray Myanmar’s Presentby The Daily Eye Team January 16 2017, 5:28 pm Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 33 secs
This festival will both examine and celebrate democracy – an event that would have been unthinkable in Myanmar just a few short years ago. Union Minister for Information Dr Pe Myint said it will begin on the International Day of Democracy (15 September) and end on the International Day of Peace (21 September). “I am really glad that the government has created a festival like this,” said artist Pan Gyi Soe Moe who sits as the chairman of the Film Search Committee. “We all want democracy. I think it’s great to make movies that look into living in a democracy,” he said.
