From 22-29 June 2013 the 9th edition of the human rights film festival Ciné Droit Libre will be held in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. To bring the film festival closer to the audience and lower the barriers for the less-privileged citizens of the city, a new venue is established: the “festival village”. In this open-air venue in the middle of a popular neighborhood, 12 human rights related films will be screened. In addition, music concerts, animation screenings and debates are organised for the 8,000 – 10,000 expected visitors.
This project is supported by Movies that Matter. Movies that Matter supports human rights film screenings worldwide. More information on the Movies that Matter Support Programme can be found at www.moviesthatmatter.nl/international.
