The International “Water and Film” Events will be held from 18 to 21 March 2009 in Istanbul, during the 5th World Water Forum, with the overall theme of “Water, People and Sustainable Development”. Around one hundred films and clips selected over a two-year period will be screened.
The World Water Forum, organized every three years by the World Water Council in close collaboration with the authorities of the hosting country, is the largest international event in the field of water. It primarily serves four main purposes:

  • To raise the importance of water on the political agenda
  • To support the deepening of discussions towards the solution of international water issues in the 21st century
  • To formulate concrete proposals and bring their importance to the world’s attention
  • To generate political commitment

The successive editions of the World Water Forum have served as stepping-stones towards global collaboration on water problems. The Forum offers the water community and decision-makers from all over the world the unique opportunity to make recommendations for ensuring the security of water resources in the different parts of the world.
