Festival de Cine y Derechos Humanos Festival, the San Sebastian Human Rights Film Festival, looks at children’s rights, reconciliation, the right to die with dignity, sexual identity, access to water, the immense problems suffered by the African continent or dictatorships and repression, all in the shape of feature films and documentaries which are often premiere previews or are coming to San Sebastian after having garnered success at prestigious international festivals.
In addition to the Official Selection of Feature Films, spaces on Africa, Latin America and the “A Second Chance” and “Movie Classics” seasons open new perspectives for the coming together of cinema and human rights.
The Festival also includes screenings for educational centers due to their belief that educating children and youths on the subject of human rights is a priority for an Educating City such as San Sebastian, a member of the International Educating Cities Network.
An international selection of short films will permit youths to increase their participation in the Festival as part of the jury granting the Youth Award for Best Short Film.
The San Sebastian Human Rights Film Festival intends is to make the question of human rights visible in the city’s public spaces. Thus, while the Festival is on, there will be an open-air exhibition entitled “Millennium Gates”, giving a clear-cut, attractive explanation of the 8 Goals of the UN “Millennium Campaign”. The exhibition “The Sign of Abuse” will make us more aware of the horror of child abuse through drawings of boys and girls who have suffered it.
There will be photography, music, and even dance, brought to us once again by the Verdini Dantza Taldea, who will give us a preview of its performance Argira. Directors, film stars and experts in the subjects at hand will follow the screenings with discussions open to the attending film audience.
