About One World Online  

In 2021, One World could not be held in cinemas due to the covid-19 pandemic. The festival launched the One World Online platform, enabling films to reach audiences even through the cinemas remained closed. After the festival, we decided to keep the platform running so that people could watch human rights documentaries throughout the year. For two years now, viewers have had the opportunity to watch films about human rights from their living room, anywhere in the Czech Republic.

All films have Czech and English subtitles, some of them with descriptive subtitles or audio description
