Workshops & Advice

We support and advise foreign organisations on how to set up film events about human rights and sustainability. With the yearly workshop and networking programme Cinema without Borders we encourage organisers of these events and we give advice on how to organise a human rights film event or festival especially in countries with limited access to resources and where freedom can’t be taken for granted.

Together with our fellow film festivals One World in Chechnya and FiSahara in Algeria we wrote the second edition of the book Setting Up a Human Rights Film Festival. This manual gives inspiring examples and practical tips about how to organise a human rights film festival.
