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!

One World is one of the cornerstones of the People in Need organisation. Since its inception in 1999, it has become the most important festival of its kind in the world, and today its programme is watched annually by over 100,000 viewers throughout the country. One World has also received an honourable mention from UNESCO for its human rights educational initiatives. People in Need was established in 1992 by a group of war correspondents and foreign correspondents who were no longer satisfied with simply bringing back information to the Czech Republic and therefore began sending out aid. People in Need has gradually established itself as a humanitarian organisation that aims to help in troubled regions and to support the observance of human rights around the world. In the 28 years it has been in existence, it has become one of the biggest non-profit organisations in Central Europe. It also began devoting itself to education and helping people living in social exclusion. Every year, the One World Festival screens over a hundred quality documentaries from all over the world. The 24th edition of the festival will take place from the 21st March till the 3rd of April across the Czech Republic.
