International Human Rights Film Forum (FIFDH)

February 27, 2015 - March 8, 2015

The International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH), which takes place every year in March, in parallel to the UN Human Rights Council, is one of the most important events dedicated to human rights worldwide. Since its inauguration in 2003, 203’000 festival-goers have attended the Festival, including a large number of youth.

Open to all, broadcast online for free worldwide and with a large international media coverage, the Festival’s goal is to bring to light human rights violation through a dual approach: festival and forum, reuniting political actors and regular citizens, artists and filmmakers, industrialists and bankers, students and researchers, journalists and writers, victims and actors on the field. All of those, during 10 days, have the unique opportunity to make their voices heard by the big international institutions.
With this unique concept, the FIFDH is a formidable Ambassador of the spirit of Geneva. It allows us to denunciate violations ignored by the UN, to bring to light the forgotten victims, to give a voice to those to risk their lives on the field, but also to bring together various perspectives and propose concrete solutions, in order to move forward in the fight for human rights in Switzerland and across the world.
