Meet human rights film festival organisers from all over the world!
In this inspirational session the participants of Cinema without Borders introduce themselves and their festivals. Afterwards there is an opportunity to meet and network. The doors open at 09:30. No need to bring breakfast yourself: we have coffee, tea and croissants ready for you.
Cinema without Borders is a multi-day interactive workshop programme for film festival organisers to strengthen new human rights film festivals and enhance the sustainability of existing festivals. In addition to connecting with like-minded festivals, sharing ideas and building new networks, participants get inspired and assisted.
The workshops focus on the film programming, communication and marketing of festivals. Topics like partnerships, fundraising and impact, but also censorship and security are discussed. International festival directors and other experts on human rights and film lead the sessions.
