DFID Shooting Dogs Screening
Report from The Department for International Development (DFID) on a SHOOTING DOGS screening that took place last week.
On Wednesday 29 March the Department for International Development (DFID) took up the invitation from Metrodome to host a screening of Shooting Dogs and a panel discussion for staff of the Department. The panel included the DFID director general for regional programs, His Excellency Claver Gatete, Rwandan Ambassador to the UK and David Belton, the producer and co-author of the film.
The film was screened simultaneously in DFID’s London and East Kilbride offices. Many of the audience had extensive experience of working in Rwanda both in the aftermath of the genocide and in the subsequent 12 years of rebuilding. The post screening Q and A session provided a chance to tap this experience and share views about the film and Rwanda today.
DFID was grateful for the opportunity to preview the film. The UK government has been the largest bilateral donor to Rwanda throughout the rebuilding process and the film contributes to an understanding of the context of this support.
