The Head of the NAM Pavel Latushka sent a letter to the President of FIAPF with a request to cancel the accreditation of the film festival Listapad
Pavel Latushka, former Minister of Culture of Belarus, who promoted the accreditation of the Minsk Film Festival "Listapad" in FIAPF, addressed a letter to Luis Alberto Scalella, President of the International Federation of Film Producers Associations.
"On Lukashenka’s personal order, non-state cultural centers are purposefully destroyed in Belarus. One of such organizations is the Center for Visual and Performing Arts "ART Corporation", the FIAPF-accredited organizer of the Minsk International Film Festival "Listapad".
In 2021, the regime appointed as the director of the film festival a state-owned company Belarusfilm, directly subordinated to the Ministry of Culture of Belarus, which enforces harsh politically motivated censorship and repression in the sphere of culture.
Today Belarusian propaganda is trying to use every planned event as a public political platform to pretend for international recognition of Lukashenka’s regime.
I am addressing you with a request to temporarily suspend the accreditation of the Minsk International Film Festival "Listapad" by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations FIAPF.
