Movies that Matter Festival Announces Competitions and Juries


The 14th edition of the Movies that Matter Festival, the yearly film festival with human rights at its core, has announced the titles for its seven competitions. After its launch last year, the festival will once again present two international competitions: the Grand Jury Fiction Award and Grand Jury Documentary Award, featuring eight and nine films respectively selected from the full programme of the festival. Two international juries will present the awards, which come with a prize of EUR 5,000, during the award ceremony on Wednesday 13 April.


The Movies that Matter Festival 2022 will take place from Friday 8 to Saturday 16 April in the Dutch city of The Hague, online and in cities across the country and will present a total of 85 films (64 feature-length films and 21 shorts), including 9 world premieres, 1 international premiere and 2 European premieres.

Still: ‘Happening’




Still: ‘Writing with Fire’


Dutch actress Monique van de Ven is chair of the Grand Jury Fiction. She will be joined by Afghan filmmaker Aboozar Amini (‘Kabul, City in the Wind’) and Tunisian director Kaouther Ben Hania (‘The Man Who Sold His Skin’). Competing for the award are Venice winner ‘Happening’ by Audrey Diwan; Nadav Lapid’s ‘Ahed’s Knee’; and ‘A Hero’ by Aghar Farhadi, among others.


Heading the Grand Jury Documentary this year is head of social cinema platform Film for Kinema Ryan Harrington. He is joined by award-winning filmmaker Sahra Mani, who is also the main guest at the festival as part of its thematic programme Take on Afghanistan, and News Emmy, PGA and Peabody nominated producer Toni Kamau, whose recent projects include Sam Soko’s ‘Softie’. Among its contenders are the Oscar-nominated ‘Ascension’ (Jessica Kingdon) and ‘Writing with Fire’ (Rintu Thomas & Sushmit Ghosh); Berlinale winner ‘Myanmar Diaries’ by the Myanmar Film Collective; the world premiere of Marjolein Busstra’s ‘Wij praten niet’ (transl.: We Don’t Talk) - and the fest’s opening film ‘Navalny’ by Daniel Roher.




Along with the two international jury competitions, the festival also presents three thematic competitions: the Activist Competition, featuring eight documentaries about the work of human rights activists; Camera Justitia, which zooms in on the importance of the rule of law and the fight against impunity; and Dutch Movies Matter celebrating films from the Netherlands that open eyes to human rights. Seven international shorts will compete in the Shorts Competition and a student jury from Leiden University will pick the winner of their Students’ Choice Award
