Human Rights Film Festival Barcelona


Years running: 30 (since 1993)

Human Rights Film Festival Barcelona

Human Rights Film Festival of Barcelona.


The Human Rights Film Festival with the main headquarter in Barcelona and also in NYC and Paris remains faithful to a dual commitment: on the one hand, to promote and open up spaces for the dissemination and screening of cinematographic works dealing with the defence of human rights; and on the other hand, to increase public awareness and boost the respect for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights based on the dissemination of those works.

The international competition programme is completed with a number of parallel activities such as specialist talks by leading national and international speakers, exhibitions concerning the world of the human rights, and worldwide travelling exhibitions of the Festival.
