After its successful edition in Prague and 33 other cities and towns in the Czech Republic, The One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is about to continue with its screenings abroad, presenting a number of selected films in Brussels on May 17-26, 2011.
This will be the fifth edition of One World in Brussels and will be held under the auspices of numerous outstanding personalities - Jerzy Buzek, the President of the European Parliament, Václav Havel, the former President of the Czech Republic and Ambassador Milena Vicenová, the Permanent Representative of the Czech Republic to the European Union.
The One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is organized by People in Need, in collaboration with the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU, the Czech Centre, the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts, the Human Rights and Democracy Network, the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the EU, the Goethe Institute and the European Parliament, and in partnership with Movies that Matter, Festival des Libertés and Watch Docs.
The festival will present films that deal with political and human rights issues from around the globe, including a range of concerns over human rights in countries such as China, Russia, Burma and Iran, as well as complex issues connected to globalization, immigration and women?s rights. All screenings will be followed either by Q&As with directors or panel discussions led by experts on the issues raised by each film.
The festival will open with the film Justice for Sergei (see photo).
