Sumar Cinema is a local initiative in Babel, Iraq, initiated by Thamer Nahed in 2019.


Follow this youth initiative implemented by Iraqi youth who took part in our EU-funded project Hiwarouna - حوارنا implemented by our partner in Iraq Iraqi Alamal Association.

The initiative brought people from different religions together to a cinema hall to learn more on each other's journey and think diversity!

"I chose education and art, because what's better than those to build peace! I screened the movie "Angy Men 12" to clarify the reasons for difference! And I chose the audience, especially the Iraqi Film Group members! Because movie goers like to talk about what they enjoyed; they spread what they learn!"

~ Tamer, a participant in the Hiwarouna project
