Le Festival International du Film des Droits de l’Homme de Paris

International Human Rights Film Festival of Paris.


The Human Rights International Film Festival in Paris strives to promote and showcase internationally some of the best documentary films made each year which tackle human rights issues. The Paris International Film Festival on Human Rights has become the most prominent, annual cultural event on human rights.

Aimed at the general public, the goal of the festival is to raise awareness and promote education in film in schools and among young people. The festival also contributes substantially to the variety of films that are shown each year as the majority of its productions are not normally screened in Ile de France.
