Film Festival One World Brussels

Between April 12 – 19, 2010, One World International Documentary Film Festival and Watch Docs Film Festival, in collaboration with the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the European Union; People in Need; the Human Rights Film Network; the Human Rights and Democracy Network; the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts; and the Festival des Libertés, are proud to announce the plans for the 4th edition of One World Brussels.

One World Brussels will give the general public and invited guests the opportunity to see a selection of the best new documentary films over six days of screenings. The festival will open on April 12th with a screening of the new Iranian documentary Green Days by 21 year old Iranian director Hana Makhmalbaf at the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts and will be followed by daily screenings at the Bozar, the Permanent Representation to the Czech Republic, two screenings at the United Nations Regional Information Centre and – for the first time – a day of screenings at the European Parliament. Every screening will be followed by either Q & A sessions with filmmakers or panel discussions with expert policy makers and members of the international NGO community.

In 2010, the films screened at One World Brussels will be judged by a jury for the first time to compete for the honor of best film. The prestigious group will include Nicolas Rougy from the Club of Madrid; Catherine Absalom from the International Federation for Human Rights; Martin Demirovski from the Open Society Institute; Willy Fautré from Human Rights Without Frontiers, and Bernard Verschueren from Protection International.
