Films & advice

As an international centre of expertise, Movies that Matter informs Dutch and foreign organisations about human rights films.

A huge number of film productions have documented or portrayed human rights abuses, ranging from big ‘Hollywood’ productions to non-western documentaries produced with limited financial resources. Movies that Matter aims to select ‘truth-loving’ films that convey a strong cinematographic and communicative message. Faced with the wide variety of human rights issues, Movies that Matter attempts to strike a balance between topical and long-term subject matters, and between problem-focused and solution-oriented films. 

You can use our online search engine to find a selection of these films. You will find films and documentaries of varying lengths dealing with different subjects, situations and countries. 

Are you organising a film screening with your Amnestygroup at the local library? Then you can order a film from us for free.
