The “Noosfera Foundation” is committed to film and film education, organizing film screenings, film training initiatives and the first international documentary film festival in the Caucasus “CineDOC-Tbilisi”. Apart from this, we intend to contribute to the development of the civil society in Georgia, by screening films on topics like human rights, ecology issues, gender problems, etc.
We also try to build a strong regional identity in the Southern Caucasus, based on a unique film culture, on a common history and on similar cultural values.
Among our projects are: DocStories Black Sea – a workshop for filmmakers – in partnership with IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam), Cinemobile Caucasus – a film screening tour through Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Focus Caucasus Conference (supported by the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation), Documentary Mondays (film screenings in art-cafes and cinemas in Tbilisi), Young Audience Award and CineDOC Young (film screenings for a young audience).
