October 1–31, 2021

 Today, the Coalition for Civil Freedoms (CCF) and its partners announce an upcoming virtual film festival to mark twenty years of the global War on Terror. The War on Terror Film Festival is a month-long, public virtual event featuring twenty award-winning films made over the last 20 years that document abuses, highlight crimes, and satirize absurdities of the post-9/11 era.

 Each screening will be accompanied by a live-streamed panel discussion with filmmakers, survivors, actors, scholars, journalists, and resistors, who will reflect on the challenges of living through the policies of the “war on terror” and telling these stories. Confirmed panelists include Edward Snowden, Michael Moore, Rory Kennedy, Kate Davis, Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Laura Poitras, Dan Reed, Chris Morris, Amy Goodman, Jehane Noujaim, Glenn Greenwald, Alex Gibney, Mohamedou Ould Slahi, Mat Whitecross, Jeremy Scahill, and many others. 

The War on Terror Film Festival will run on five weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) in October, beginning Friday, October 1 and ending Sunday, October 31

From the Oscar-winning “Citizenfour” and “Taxi to the Dark Side” to the Oscar-nominated “Dirty Wars” and the highly-acclaimed “The Mauritanian,” “Four Lions,” “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “The Feeling of Being Watched,” these films shine a spotlight on the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, indefinite detention at Guantánamo Bay prison, torture and surveillance.

The slate of films include documentary and narrative features and cut across genres from drama to comedy. Together, they paint a picture of the experiences of those who bore the brunt of America’s post-9/11 policies, as well as their pain, trauma, hope, and resilience.

All films and panel discussions will be accessible through the main festival website https://wotfilmfestival.com, which also includes upcoming showings, a roster of participants in each film’s discussion, and the complete 5-weekend schedule. Participants should register to receive email updates and full, free access to watch the films. Follow and like @WOTFilmFestival on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates and announcements.

 The dates for the virtual festival are: October 1–3; 8–10; 15–17; 22–24; and 29–31, with four films screened per weekend. The festival is entirely free and accessible to the public following registration.

 The opening night of the festival on October 1 will feature a virtual premiere event from 3–4 PM ET hosted by CCF and featuring festival sponsors. The four films screening on the opening weekend, October 1-3, will be The Mauritanian (2019), The Road to Guantánamo (2006), The Confession (2016), and The Battle of Algiers (1966). Each film will feature a live discussion with audience Q&A.

Russland im Militärmaßstab (german-foreign-policy.com)

(Eigener Bericht) – Die Bundeswehr hat einen Auftrag zur „Herstellung und Lieferung“ hochauflösender Landkarten von Russland vergeben. Es gehe um Wanderkarten „im Militärmaßstab“, heißt es in einem Bericht. Deutschland sei Teil eines Kooperationsnetzwerks, in dem sich 32 Staaten – gruppiert um einen NATO-Kern – „wechselseitig mit Fotos und Karten versorgen“. Die Beschaffung der militärisch nutzbaren Karten erfolgt, während die Spannungen zwischen dem Westen und Russland immer weiter anschwellen. Zuletzt hat die EU mit neuen Sanktionen gedroht. Bei der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik (DGAP) heißt es, es seien nicht nur neue „Investitionen in die Verteidigungsfähigkeit im Rahmen von NATO und EU“ zu tätigen; es gelte darüber hinaus den „Wandel in Russland“ durch intensive Kontakte in die russische Gesellschaft zu fördern. Gleichzeitig sperrt der US-Konzern Google auf seiner Videoplattform YouTube den deutschsprachigen Ableger des Auslandssenders Russia Today, RT DE. Der Schritt ähnelt Maßnahmen, die die DGAP begleitend zu einer aggressiveren deutschen Außenpolitik vorschlägt.
