Welcome to the frontier of change, where cinema meets social reality. The fourth season of the Knowmad Short Film Festival, “Stigma Dialogues,” invites you to dive into a world where drug stigmas and their societal impact are challenged through the power of the seventh art.

In “Stigma Dialogues,” we explore untold stories and silenced voices. This is a space where cinema becomes a bridge between diverse human experiences, dismantling prejudices and paving the way for a deeper and more empathetic understanding of complex issues affecting our society.

This year, we focus on illuminating the realities of the relationship between people and drugs, the impact of their policies, and their social and environmental repercussions, always with respect for human dignity and fundamental rights. We want each short film, each dialogue, to be a step towards a more inclusive and compassionate society, resonating with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), from health and well-being (SDG 3), reducing inequalities (SDG 10), promoting peace, justice, and strong institutions (SDG 16), and strengthening the partnerships to achieve the goals (SDG 17).

KSFF is not just a short film festival; it’s a call to action, a movement towards understanding and solidarity. Your creativity, vision, and voice are crucial on this collective journey towards real impact. We invite you to watch and actively participate in this transformation.

Together, we can redefine narratives, build bridges of understanding, and forge a future where empathy and dignity prevail. Join KSFF in its fourth season, “Stigma Dialogues: Drugs, Society & Humanity,” and be part of this movement.
