First edition of the 639:kal film festival on linguistic diversity

The first edition of the 639: kal festival, dedicated to linguistic diversity, will be held online from 1 to 7 September. This year it will focus on Kalaallisut, the Eskimo-Aleutian language spoken in Greenland. A dozen documentaries and short films will be screened, and there will be debates and interviews. The festival, which each year will be dedicated to a different endangered language, aims to be a space for dialogue and reflection on the processes of language minoritisation, as well as a platform to increase the visualisation and digital use of these languages.
