Human Rights Film Network / Seminar for Festival Organizers

To mark this occasion, One World is hosting a seminar that brings together members of the HRFN, representatives of well-established festivals and new partners from south-east, central and eastern Europe who wish to launch human rights film festivals in their own countries.

Visegrad Highlights
Each year we screen a special selection of major documentaries produced in
Visegrad countries after 1989. This year we have asked prominent filmmakers to
make the selection. Czech films were chosen by Helena Trestikova, Hungarian

One World 2004 will present retrospectives of Cinéma Vérité documentaries and of war propaganda films. We have prepared a special program of 10 feature films with strong human rights content. We will continue our tradition of screening films by the Grand Jury members. A very significant part of the film festival is the debates and discussions with the filmmakers and experts on a given theme. There will also be panel discussions, exhibitions, concerts and
other events.
