UNIC INFORMATION ABOUT SERIES OF HUMAN RIGHTS FILM ON HUMAN RIGHTS DAY 2016
Building on the success of the 2015 experience, the second edition of the film festival Human Rights through Cinematography will take place 15 November – 10 December 2016. The positive response the film festival received last year, encouraged us to increase the number of movies and of locations: twenty three movies and documentaries will be screened in Gujrat, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta. The themes featured include migration, democracy, forced marriages, domestic violence, and freedom of press, honor killings, decent work and women’s empowerment among others. The number of partners has also increased: in addition to the European Union, the Swiss Confederation and the International Film Festival of Human Rights (FIFDH), this year the Embassy of Argentina and the High Commissions of Australia and Canada have joined the organizing committee of the festival. Debates with specialists will follow the screenings while several movie directors will be available for Q&A sessions either in presence or via video link.
