During this year’s Amnesty International Award competition for films on human rights issues, the jury will award the best film with 3 000 euros.
We choose the winning title from the pictures that provide knowledge about human rights and the fact that they are still being abused and violated in many different places around the world. We pay attention to movies that give a true and fair view about the reality that surrounds us, show current problems and social changes, and what is very important, also emphasize the individual perspective of the characters in the story. Filmmaking is an unusual process and the end product can not only touch people's feelings and offer entertainment, but also shape attitudes and encourage action. The creators of documentary movies on human rights issues are the people who treat this process with particular mindfulness and therefore contribute to spreading awareness on human rights around the world.
The Amnesty International Award is a way to say "thank you" for their work.
