Masafa, launched in April to highlight the responsibility of staying at home during the global COVID-19 pandemic, is an international event for filmmakers and producers to compete towards enhancing international awareness through innovations and creativity and is supported by the 360production Company. More than 700 films from more than 70 countries are competing in the documentary, feature films and action films categories.
The partnership between Naqsh and the UN aims to engage the creative community with the “UN75” initiative launched this year by the United Nations to mark its 75th anniversary. UN75 seeks to increase participation in the world’s largest conversation on our future and engage young people around the greatest global challenges of our time such as the COVID19 pandemic.
The General Manager of Naqsh Films Organisation, Mohamed Maskati, welcomed the United Nations as its Social Responsibility Partner noting that partnering with the United Nations asserts the popularity of the competition and its positive influence on reinforcing social responsibility and promoting creativity within this difficult time.
Maskati highlighted that Naqsh Films Organisation will support engaging the creative community in the world’s’ biggest conversation on our future through the dissemination of the UN75 one-minute survey to nurture global dialogue.
UN Resident Coordinator in Saudi Arabia, Nathalie Fustier noted that “Solving complex problems requires cooperation and coordination. We need to come together, not only to talk but to listen. It is essential that we all join the conversation. We need the creative community’s ideas and input to be able to deliver better for our communities.”
