The Second Take Film Festival: Gender and Society in Cinema began screening films Monday of this week at the French Cultural Center (Esteqlal High School), Kabul, and continues through Friday May 2nd.

The diverse program includes full-length and short documentaries and dramatic films. The dates of production range from the 1960s to current day educational films. The influences of Iranian, Indian, European and American productions are explored, with a special focus on the role of women behind the camera. Discussions with guest artists are scheduled.

The festival is produced by the documentary film group, mazefilm of Berlin, Germany, and the Centre for Art and Culture Afghanistan (CACA-Kabul), which was founded in Kabul in 2003, to initiate new and independent projects. CACA-Kabul produces documentary films, is the publisher of the literary and art magazine Honarmand, organises film festivals, and under the name Cinema-Club holds discussion rounds on the critique and analysis of films.
