The film festival will last for five days until December 14 and over 75 films will compete for three awards and the judges award.

Sunday opening movie was a docudrama for the Syrian director Al-Mohannad Kalthom “Jasmine” which has won many awards before.

The film is a melancholic portrait of the war ramification on children in Syria with an optimist representation of the hope the children harbour for a better Syria and a better future.
