Setting Up a Human Rights Film Festival

Setting Up a Human Rights Film Festival is an inspiring guide for film festival organisers from all over the world, edited by One World in Czech Republic, FiSahara in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Algeria and Movies that Matter in The Netherlands.

Written by festival organizers from around the world, this handbook focuses on the needs and challenges of festivals that are sprouting all over the developing world and those in countries where democratic systems are still emergent or non-existent.
You can read or download the free full version of the handbook or browse through it by chapters following this link.

How to fund your project?

Raising funds is always a difficult part and, obviously, there is no universal way to raise funds. However, we listed some tips that might be helpful or maybe spark new ideas. 
Click here for an overview of other funds and resources we came across. 


Find a wide selection of high quality human rights films in our online film database through this link. Movies that Matter continually adds new features, documentaries and short films to this selection.

This "instruction video" about setting up a mobile human rights film festival was created during a workshop programme on mobile cinema in November 2013, organised by Movies that Matter.
