The FIFDH celebrates human rights around the world! Since 2017, the Human Rights Film Tour, organized in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAE), has toured Swiss embassies in 60 countries, from Sri Lanka to Nicaragua to Bhutan.

In 2024, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a new and promising collaboration begins between the FIFDH and UN Human Rights (OHCHR).

From February to April, a selection of Impact Days films will be screened in UN units around the world. These events bring together activists, NGOs, teachers, students, journalists and the general public, inviting them to view committed films and exchange views on human rights.
