The title of the event was inspirited by ‘This Is Not A Film’ from Iranian film director Jafar Panahi (2011, Special Selection Cannes Film Festival). Our selection of short and long documentary films focus on social and political topics from Middle East, North Africa, South Africa and South America. The selection and source of films are from film festivals that we collaborate with, such as: Africa In The Picture Film Festival Amsterdam, Arab Film Festival Rotterdam, Movies That Matters Den Haag and Iranian Film Festival Rotterdam.

In ‘This Is Not A Film Festival’ we used the CINEDOMA for the first time. We screened films on a flat screen (2,5m x 1,8m) with stereo sound system. For electricity we used our Pirate Energy Truck with 8 solar panels (120W each) and a set of 5 persons pedal power. Thanks to this system approximately 80% of our electricity consumption is produced by ourself and green.
