This year, the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is joining forces with the ‘this human world’ International Human Rights Film Festival in Vienna, Austria.
This partnership aims to better promote common values, to draw attention to human rights emergencies and to bring facts to heated and challenging discussions. At the festival, FRA will host 8 film screenings, followed by panel discussions with film directors, artists, human rights practitioners and the audience.
The panels will zoom into specific human rights dilemmas such as belonging, security and human rights and art, rights, justice. By exploring stories from lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, migrants and asylum seekers, host communities, authorities, people with disabilities, children, media and many more, the films will aim to challenge, provoke and inspire opinions and reflections.
