Setting Up a Human Rights Film Festival

Setting Up a Human Rights Film Festival is an inspiring guide for film festival organisers 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 organisers 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.
