Best female director Award
It is unfortunate that very little attention has been paid in the last eleven years in exploring the work environment of female media workers, filmmakers, artists and improving the situation for them. The biggest achievement of Afghanistan will remain deficient unless women secure a reasonable presence in the Afghan cinema and media landscape.
It is therefore for the Afghan government, national and international media support organizations and the international community to take concrete and meaningful measures to improve the situation for female media workers if they want to proudly use the media and freedom of expression as a success story in Afghanistan.
We at ADFF, encouraging the women cinematographers, who speaks from the republic of silence by their wonderful films and it’s the big case that we have especial award as best film from women’s perspective by women director.
