After two successful Kleptoscope talks discussing the former Soviet Union and the Middle East, we come closer to home, with an exploration of Britain’s offshore tax havens. The Channel Islands, and the various overseas territories in the Caribbean and elsewhere pay host to huge capital flows, as well as untold thousands of shell companies, but are they are bad as they are painted?

Frontline Russia presents a panel discussion on the potential impacts of Russia’s new anti-terror laws and the future of activism in Russia. In the face of ‘big brother’ laws and new limitations on organising, what does the future of activism look like for the country? How are new technological developments changing the ways grassroots movements develop and offline political groups come together? We will be joined by a panel of experts to re-examine Russia’s politicised cyberspace in the context of new state legislation.

For the first of our industry parties of the year, we’re giving photographers a chance to practice their pitching skills while receiving valuable feedback from online editors, curators and publishers. This night is a great opportunity for photographers to determine which outlet is best suited for bringing their project to a wide audience. Photographers who would like to present work in a 7 minute pitch should sign up to receive a time slot and all presenters will be listed online ahead of the event. Industry professionals will be present at tables respective to the platforms of their expertise, and everyone is encouraged to visit across these groups to have a chat and a drink.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Andreas Møl Dalsgaard.
Through observational and at times humorous footage of everyday life, The War Show exposes what it is like to be a creative, ambitious young woman living amidst one of the most destructive conflicts of our time. This unprecedented documentary offers a rarely-seen image of youth culture in Syria, following the experiences of a DJ and her friends following Arab Spring of 2011, when the sad realities that follow envelop their hope for liberation.
