One World online

One World’s tradition in the Czech Republic stretches back more than twenty years, and over time, it has grown into the world’s largest festival for documentary films on human rights. During the One World Festival, documentaries are screened in dozens of Czech cities and villages across the country and are watched by approximately 100,000 viewers, including thousands of high school students. Of course, the festival was not untouched by the first wave of the pandemic, which swept everyone with internet access into the virtual world behind their computer and mobile phone screens.

 

Therefore, the 23rd Annual One World Film Festival had no choice but to move part of its festivities to an online environment. But that led us to create something that we’re now very happy to share with you: a year-round distribution channel with dozens of festival documentaries that you can enjoy anytime, anywhere in the Czech Republic. One World Online.

All films will have Czech subtitles while some will also have English subtitles and be clearly marked as English Friendly. All of the films from this year will have Czech and English subtitles. Because we strive for accessibility for everyone, even when in an online environment, a select number of documentaries will have descriptive or colour-coded subtitles as well as audio-described playback – more on that HERE.

Prices for screenings will vary based on a documentary’s release date. After purchase, the film will be available to you for 48 hours (this does not apply to live screenings). In order to make a purchase, you must first register. At One World Online, you’ll also find supplementary materials for select films, interviews with filmmakers, and other interesting info. You can rate each streamed film after playback and your votes will chose the winner of the Audience Award.

We hope you enjoy One World Online, and before we meet again in the flesh in a cinema near you, we hope you enjoy the show from the comfort of your own living room.
