The Human Rights Film Festival Berlin shows stories of courageous individuals and communities on both sides of the lens, bears witness to human rights violations and creates a forum to gain new perspectives on our world. Founded and organized by the nonprofit organization Aktion gegen den Hunger, HRFFB aims to inspire, influence and educate people – opening their eyes and minds to the concept of human rights through the powerful medium of film. Functioning as a bridge between NGOs, filmmakers, journalists and the public audience, we seek to inspire and engage audiences with social justice and human rights issues. Through film screenings followed by Q&As we aim to foster a lively discussion on some of the most pressing topics of our time.
The HRFFB 2019 will be held between 18th -25th of September 2019. With over 70 screenings, discussions and workshops in five cinemas, the festival will explore diverse and inspiring human stories from all over the world. It is a unique initiative for human rights to reach the people of Berlin.
