Late 2013, Movies that Matter organised a workshop programme on mobile cinema. The five participants - ambitious film festival organisers from Burma, the Philippines, Sierra Leone, Colombia and Guatemala - shared experiences and ideas to professionalise and further develop their travelling film festivals. Several Dutch and international experts came to share their experiences with the workshop participants.
The programme took place during the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), enabling participants to connect with relevant people from the film industry, including members of the Human Rights Film Network. During the workshop programme the participants developed a short video, called 'Mobile Cinema for Human Rights', with a few globally accepted basic rules on how to set up a travelling human rights film festival.
