21/7/2019 12:06:00

The first session of the International Theater Festival will be held in Sulaymaniyah in conjunction with World Theater Day on March 27, 2020.


On Saturday, "Masti" Film Company and (TAV) theater center organized the first ceremony of the International Theater Festival in the Salim Cinema Hall in Sulaymaniyah.


Zarya Sami, member of the administrative body in the ceremony, told PUKmedia: The timing of the festival depends on the extent to which the demands can be implemented, because the attempts in the city of Sulaymaniyah are not at the level of international standards for the organization of an international festival, so at the beginning theatrical attempts must be organized.


Sami added that the steps are being taken to organize the festival next year in conjunction with the World Theatre Day, which falls on 27 March 2020, pointing out that the organization of the festival will have an impact on progress and development in the field of theater in the Kurdistan Region.


At the end of the ceremony, awards were given to a number of artists and other personalities who had a role in the development of the theater.
