The European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), consists of the British Council, the Goethe Institute and the Institut Français d’Afghanistan.
In partnership with EUNIC, the British Council has played a key role in organising the National Theatre and Afghan International Short and Documentary Film Festivals since 2004.
Our purpose has been to:
- be an advocate for the revival of cinema and theatre as an important dimension of the Afghan creative industry sector;
- support the professional development of filmmakers and festival managers;
- help Afghan artists from across the country to network; and
- encourage international recognition of the Afghan film and theatre industry.
