BEIRUT | iloubnan.info, with agencies - January 11, 2014, 19h27
The Lebanese Film Festival and the Beirut Cinema event had to be postponed for security reasons. Both events were to take place on January 18 till 22.
"Confronted with an unstable security situation, (...) La Fondation Liban Cinéma, Bande-à-Part and Né à Beyrouth are compelled to postpone the Beirut Cinema event, programmed with a large participation of international speakers," the organizers announced in a press release published on the Facebook page of the event. Beirut Cinema is a joint creation of the Lebanese Film Festival (created by Né à Beyrouth and managed by Bande à Part) and the Fondation Liban Cinéma.

"In such a context, we are unable to ensure the proper course of the initial program and guaranty our responsibility towards our foreign guests, with respect to the Lebanese Film Festival, with its master classes with our Argentinean guests and the meetings between filmmakers and the public; and with respect to La Fondation Liban Cinéma, the professional meetings at the Beirut Cinema Project, as well as La Nuit des Mabrouk, the festive evening paying tribute to Lebanese cinema which was scheduled to close Beirut Cinema as a fundraising event for the activities of the Fondation," the press release stated.

"We will continue to work closely together because we are deeply convinced that the union of both our organizations, committed to the promotion of Lebanese Cinema, will help accompany and carry Lebanese cinema on the domestic and international scenes. We are determined to launch Beirut Cinema in the near future."

"Cinema is a powerful economic force, a creator of jobs and revenues. It is also a cultural media which, similarly to all artistic creations, is of tremendous help during tumultuous periods and particularly the one we are going through right now. It prevents us from falling into violence, intolerance and despair," the text concluded.
