Welcome to our Virtual Festival as We Launch One World Online for You

When One World was just being established, having a computer running the Windows 98 operating system was considered trendy and Facebook wouldn’t be around for another five long years. Twenty-three years later, advances in technology have made it possible to transfer almost the entire festival to the virtual world.

The pandemic crisis made us think about how to make our festival of documentary films and discussions about human rights safe. Consequently, in cooperation with the Czech IT company PRO-ZETA, we’ve developed a functioning distribution channel, which is available year-round and offers dozens of the festival’s documentaries. You can visit and watch films at any time and from anywhere in the Czech Republic.  One World Online.

You’ll already find a section of films from the last ten years of the One World Festival, as well the special opportunity to see the first documentary from this year’s edition: Andrey Gryazev’s The Foundation Pit. During this, the festival’s 23rd year – from 20 May to 6 June – you’ll be able to watch all 102 films from this year’s selection.  

After logging in to the One World Online platform and purchasing the screenings you want to watch, you’ll be able enjoy home cinema in your living room. Your chosen films will be available for 48 hours. We’re glad that, during this difficult time, this way of watching films will make it possible to at least slightly support documentary film-makers who focus on a diverse range of human rights topics.

All the films have Czech subtitles, some also have English subtitles and are marked as English friendly. Selected documentaries have descriptive captions as well as audio descriptions.

We’re pleased that you’re here with us and we believe that One World Online will bring you many unique film experiences, new stimuli, information, and just simple joy from documentaries.
