Director Zaradasht Ahmed's film ‘Nowhere to Hide’ has won the prize for best cinema documentary at IDFA, the world's largest documentary film festival. Among other things, ‘Nowhere to Hide’ addresses the development of Iraq from the American retreat in 2011 and up to the time that the film's protagonist, the nurse Nori Sharif, had to flee from IS some years later.

A list has now been published of the grants awarded by the Fritt Ord Foundation in November.

Among the roughly 80 allocations, we find five journals. WUXIA Journal of Film Culture received NOK 20 000 for its final issue in 2016, while Bok & samfunn received NOK 50 000 for a special issue on Norwegian factual prose. Patetiske Produkter received NOK 15 000 for the publication of NO Kulturmagazinet/Nye Oppstøt # 17, and Fanfare got NOK 50 000 for its 2017 publications. Mellom, a journal about translation and translated literature, received an allocation of NOK 30 000 for 2017.

The documentary film "Our allies" will have a preview screening at Fritt Ord's premises on Monday, 14 November 2016, at 7.30 p.m. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Henrik Thune, executive director of the Norwegian Centre for Conflict Resolution and, writer Åsne Seierstad, director Anders Sømme Hammer, and Jeannette Plato, programme host of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's programme Brennpunkt.
