The Paris International Film Festival on Human Rights (Festival International du Film des Droits de l’Homme-FIFDH) has become the most important regular cultural event on Human Rights in France. It is especially engaged in terms of raising awareness and film education for schools and students. FIFDH offers a unique platform for film screenings and debate forums where filmmakers, audiences, professors, activists and industry professionals discuss global human rights issues from a range of perspectives.
Whether the films confront human rights issues in terms of political, economical, social, cultural or environmental themes, the FIFDH program tackles the most important issues affecting our global community. In 2007, [A]LLIANCE organized the first FIFDH editions of Lomé (Togo) and Bangui (Central African Republic) with the backing of the European Union, the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie and the UNDP.
The juries of the “Creative Documentaries” and “Dossiers et Grands Reportages” categories are made up of two teams of professionals from the fields of cinema, journalism and human rights protection. The 2010 Jury of the "Dossiers et Grands Reportages" category was: Véronique Gaymard, RFI journalist, Frédéric Joli, spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Cross in France, Hervé de Ruggiero, FNARS’s managing director and Patrick Sibourd, director of the distribution company Nourfilms. The jury of the "Creative Documentaries" category was: Marie Genin, director and producer, Idrissa Guiro, director, Jacques Serba, former president of Action against Hunger as well as Ruth Stégassy, producer and presenter of the programme Terre à Terre on France Culture. There is also a student jury.
Since 2004, the film festivals whose programs aim to promote the protection of human rights have been brought together in a coalition within the Human Rights Films Network. This network now brings together more than twenty five festivals in the world some of which are backed by major international human rights protection organisations such as Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. It strives for a better distribution of films on the subject and intends to endorse the emergence of new film festivals on human rights (programs, help obtaining funding, organizational consulting,…), especially in the developing countries. Every year, the HRFN attracts a combined audience of more than 200 000 viewers worldwide. The full list of festivals is available at: www.humanrightsfilmnetwork.org/index.php
