Human Rights Film Festival 04/2018

Winner April 2018 Human Rights Film Festival 04/2018


The application: 

The Human Rights Film Festival Berlin will take place from 20.09 - 26.09.2018 for the first time under the organization of Aktion gegen den Hunger.
As part of a cinema week, we want to bring important human rights- political- and humanitarian issues on stage. In three Berlin cinemas (Babylon Mitte, Hackesche Höfe Kino, Filmrauschpalast) in over 40 screenings, we show 20 global films that have development policy relevance to the yearly focus on flight and migration. Additionally, we also hold 4 school screenings where pupils have the chance to dive into the topic shown in documentary films selected specifically for them. The accompanying preparation and follow-ups to the films will enable viewers for a long-lasting engagement with current human rights issues.
For example, through Q&As with the directors or protagonists or through discussions with refugees, the extensive program not only supports the topic presented in the films but also deepens it and creates room for discussion.
Many people feel overwhelmed by current events. It is therefore all the more important to promote an understanding of foreign cultures and people. This is exactly where our festival comes into play since film can touch us like no other medium.
