According to the Kashmir Observer the 14th 'Resistance International Film Festival' (RIFF) is being held from September 23-30, 2016 in Iran. The goal of the festival, according to the organizers, is to create an atmosphere of dialogue in order to understand current human sufferings, and to share experiences and new ideas. RIFF public relations office stated that since 14th RIFF call for entries opened, more than 600 films have been submitted so far. Artists from 54 countries such as the US, England, France, Germany, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, South Korea, India, Turkey, Canada, Egypt, Spain, Iraq, Russia, and Indonesia have sent their features, shorts, documentaries and animations to the festival office.

Kashmir Observer is one of the first English-language daily newspapers published in Srinagar in Kashmir, a state of India. The daily began its publication in March 1997 when the local population, caught up in a bloody conflict and hungry for news, was dependent on newspapers coming from New Delhi. The Observer is among the very few newspapers believed to have retained credibility despite heavy odds facing media in conflict-ridden Kashmir.
