ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING
The historical knowledge of our cultural heritage is an important basis for the development of our culture. The task of archaeology and historic preservation is to discover and preserve the cultural heritage.
The purpose of projecting films at the Festival is the dissemination of this knowledge to make past civilizations better understood to people from different backgrounds
