G er is the main dwelling and a great heritage of the nomadic Mongols. Golden Ger means an event with the highest form of expressiveness in the most inclusive manner. Starting in 2020, Mongolian Film Institute is changing the name of the festival from previous Altan Khalis International Film Festival into Golden Ger International Film Festival. Golden Ger International Film Festival (GGIFF) provides a platform for aspiring young filmmakers to challenge themselves and showcase their burgeoning talents to a growing audience of movie-lovers. Ultimately, the film festival aims to establish a creative filmmaking scene in Mongolia. This year, due to COVID-19 pandemic we decided to organize the festival as an online streaming event. The current setup is to live stream all the short films and feature films on Skymedia and SkyGo. So, during the days of the festival, all the films will be put on the platform for free to watch. This way, we would reach more people than we could actually reached through traditional screening in cinemas. Mongolian Film Institute received 586 short films from 71 (including Mongolia) countries this year and 44 films were selected in the international and Mongolian competition section. Along with feature films screenings, Spotlight on Alisi Telengut, and out of competition section films the competition section films will stream on Skymedia and SkyGo platforms. Apart from the screenings, live videos and online Master Class with Canadian renowned filmmaker Atom Egoyan will be broadcast on the festival facebook page GGIFFest. The four feature films are the best films from 2019 which were selected in Locarno, Toronto, Busan, Vesoul and other festivals. On the closing day of the festival, the winners of the competition section will be announced.

Redevelopment will focus on augmenting urban planning with mapping and monitoring indicators and strengthening the coordination capacity of stakeholders through ICT solutions. Strong support will be given towards inclusive community engagement and access to economic opportunities within ger locales. In consultation with stakeholders and community members Arts Council of Mongolia (ACM) seeks to change people’s behavior and attitude towards their own communities.
