The FIFDH unveils its 2019 poster

A poster created from a photography by Zuko Wonderfull Sikhafungana.

The poster of the Festival’s 17th edition was created from a photograph by Zuko Wonderfull Sikhafungana, photographer, filmmaker and theatre director from South Africa. He directs the Back Stage Theater Production, a troupe based in a township in Cape Town, which explores the links between poetry and politics.

Isabelle Gattiker, general and artistic director of the FIFDH, explains this choice: "We fell in love with this striking image, that is both intimate and collective. Like this 17th edition of the FIFDH, it offers a unique and intrepid perspective, it takes a clear stance against the current era of anger and goes beyond gender identities. To our mind, this image evokes a freedom of tone, a deep desire, but also an ideal to be recovered".

The 17th edition of the Geneva International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights will take place from 8 to 17 March 2019 in more than 60 locations of the Greater Geneva and French-speaking Switzerland. The programme for this edition will be unveiled on Thursday, 14 February. The online ticketing will be open the same day.
