In 2012 the film days “Wissen.Schafft.Entwicklung” took place for the first time. Since then the team of APPEAR – the Austrian Development Cooperation’s higher education cooperation programme at the OeAD, funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation – has invited people to annual film screenings on all sorts of topics and scientific orientations.
Since 2016 the Film Days have no longer taken place as a stand-alone event but as part of other established festivals, such as the This Human World - International Human Rights Film Festival.
On 10 December 2022 at 1 p.m. we will show the film Among Us Women as part of the cooperation and then discuss with the film producer Sonja Kilbertus and the APPEAR scholarship holder Simegn Kassa Alamirew from the Department of Development Research of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna.
Cinema as a place of encounter and film as a form of resistance with an always critical view of global inequalities will be discussed and examined on different levels. With the film and discussion format the APPEAR team at the OeAD wants to make development policy and development research accessible to a broad public.
