We are happy to announce that One World is back again! The 24th Annual International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival will take place physically in 25 cities across the Czech Republic from March 21st to April 3rd. This years´ theme and the name of the main category is Journeys of Freedom.
Things that are shaking the world of human rights sadly remain in the shadow of the pandemic, but our festival can’t sit back and ignore them. The ongoing authoritarian regime in Belarus, the re-established military dictatorship in Burma, the pressure and criminalisation of the Russian opposition, but also an independent judiciary in Poland under threat… One World can’t just stand by and watch as human rights continue to deteriorate across the globe. We must do something to draw people’s attention to it again. Especially in a year like this when People in Need celebrates its 30th anniversary since its founding.
Besides the regular screenings, selected films will also be made available on the One World Online platform and in the city of Brussels, once the festival is over.
In the meantime, you can watch the spot for One world here (in Czech).
We can´t wait to see you in cinemas!
