What’s the cost of safety? This is the question that the 25th One World Festival poses
One crisis after another is shaking the world – the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, and climate change. One World can’t ignore any of these. Each year, the festival brings dozens of documentaries about human rights and human rights violations to cinemas. This year’s festival theme is The Cost of Safety. We’ve added a new competition category dedicated to virtual reality projects and an expanded discussion program. The 25th One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival will take place from March 22nd to April 2nd in 28 cities throughout the Czech Republic. The festival will take place in Prague from March 22 to 30, 2023. A selection of films will be available for viewing after the festival on the One World Online platform.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the One World film festival. Over the course of the festival's existence, it has grown into the world's largest event of its kind. "For this year's edition, we decided to expand to include a discussion program that carries equal weight with the film program and to give more space to virtual reality. This has been highly successful in the past few years, so we’ve decided to create a separate competition category for it," says festival director Ondřej Kamenický. The festival, once again scheduled for March, is subtitled The Cost of Safety.
