Student Democracy Documentaries Georgia

This initiative was supported by The New Democracy Fund through the New Cooperation Mechanism.

About the project

This project aims at creating an enabling environment for democratic dialogue among youth in six regions of Georgia through documentary films and workshops.


Documentary films offer a dynamic and innovative way to inform and engage youth about democratic values, activating agency to participate in democratic dialogue.


During the project period, the project partners will host “Democracy Fellowships” for Georgian students, by inviting them to a series of documentary film screenings and workshops. The hope is, that these fellowships will result in more Georgian students engaging in democratic dialogue.
