One World’s tradition in the Czech Republic stretches back more than twenty years, and over time, it has grown into the world’s largest festival for documentary films on human rights. During the One World Festival, documentaries are screened in dozens of Czech cities and villages across the country and are watched by approximately 100,000 viewers, including thousands of high school students. Of course, the festival was not untouched by the first wave of the pandemic, which swept everyone with internet access into the virtual world behind their computer and mobile phone screens.
Therefore, the 23rd Annual One World Film Festival had no choice but to move part of its festivities to an online environment. But that led us to create something that we’re now very happy to share with you: a year-round distribution channel with dozens of festival documentaries that you can enjoy anytime, anywhere in the Czech Republic. One World Online.
All films will have Czech subtitles while some will also have English subtitles and be clearly marked as English Friendly. All of the films from this year will have Czech and English subtitles. Because we strive for accessibility for everyone, even when in an online environment, a select number of documentaries will have descriptive or colour-coded subtitles as well as audio-described playback – more on that HERE.
