Festival Del Cinema Dei Diritti Umani Di Napoli

Festival Del Cinema Dei Diritti Umani Di Napoli

20 November to 30 November 2019

Naples (Italy)

The Naples Human Rights Film Festival was born in 2008 as an initiative of the association "Cinema e Diritti" with the aim of establishing a reference point for Human Rights debate in Southern Europe opening up a dialogue among civil societies from the Middle East to North Africa and to Northern Europe and America.The tradition of hospitality in the city of Naples and its function as a crossroad for migrant people since the Middle Age allows us today to establish a meeting point for communities that are moving towards democracy and peace. Naples, through the project of its Film Festival, aims to become a “Human Rights City”, and has been aligned with Buenos Aires and its DerHumALC festival from the beginning. The Festival of Naples is designed and built every year through a process of participation that features the city's neighborhood associations and municipalities from the metropolitan area. Each association chooses a day and a topic from universal rights developing it through movies, presentations and open debates. Guests are available to schools and universities for lectures and discussions; and there is a documentary film competition. Shows are all free. The main target audience of the festival is scholars and university students, but also the outlying communities and most vulnerable social groups, as far as immigrants and Roma people. Every year the winners of the competition are admitted in the selection of the DerHumALC Film Festival and awarded with a contribution in travel expenses to attend the "Ventana sobre Napoles" which takes place in Buenos Aires and that reinforces the friendship with the Argentinean Festival.
