1. Lost and Forgotten Dances:
Asia Culture House has partnered with Porsesh Research and Studies Organization and Aga Khan Trust for Culture to implement the project, “Lost and Forgotten Dances”. The project aims at identifying and reviving those dances that have been forgotten or are vulnerable to being forgotten. As a result of this project, a detailed research paper and a documentary film will be produced. Identified dances will be performed in Kabul by performers who would be trained.

ADFF is an International Afghan Documentary Festival in Sweden, with films from around Afghanistan by Afghan’s and films about Afghanistan by international filmmakers. Each year, the Festival presents a selection of cutting-edge documentaries about Afghanistan and it’s one of the most typical and anthropologist film festivals about Afghanistan, to introduce the young and new generation of filmmakers, as a platform to share the works of filmmakers, artists who have unfortunately been marginalized by the authority. It will present stories of lives affected by war, discrimination, and injustice. These stories are of people who have resisted oppression and fought against violence to create a more human world.
