”Our Rights” at film festival in Albania
Civil Rights Defenders exhibition ”Our Rights” will be shown at the fifth edition of the International Human Rights Film Festival in Albania. Our Programme Officer Peter Mossop will be participating at the festival. The organizers themselves present the ideas and aims of the festival in the following way:
Human Rights in Albania have been an important issue to be solved during the years of transition. Despite the taken measures, there are still serious human rights violations in the Albanian society.
The International Human Rights Film Festival in Albania comes with a new way of educating people with the human rights concepts. Constituted as a cultural platform for the dissemination and awareness rising of the people on human rights issues, it operates through using image as its instrument.
The Film Festival includes in its program documentary and fiction movies dealing with human rights that are sensitive especially for the Albanian society. This event brings to the public’s attention similar experiences from all over the world, and by using image as its tool the impact is stronger and direct.
Date: Tuesday October 5 – Sunday October 10
