Become a partner of the FIFDH

The International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights is the world's most important event dedicated to both cinema and human rights. Since its creation in 2003 at the heart of Geneva, international capital of human rights, the FIFDH has continued to grow and extend its influence.

Why support the FIFDH?

A unique concept

Entirely public and widely covered by the international press, the Festival brings together filmmakers and public figures from around the world around films and high level debates, giving them a unique opportunity to have their voices heard by international institutions and the wider public.

A great ambassador of the Geneva spirit

The FIFDH takes place during the UN's Human Rights Council. It provides a space to freely denounce all violations, to shed light on forgotten victims, to relay the message of those who risk their lives on the field, to confront points of view and offer concrete solutions.

The festival reaches out into the Greater Geneva municipalities

Free screenings and debates are organized in cafés, museums, places of worship, hospitals, universities, prisons and collective accommodation centres for migrants.

An international impact

The FIFDH falls within an international network which includes more than 60 festivals worldwide, from Cambodia to Bolivia, Mexico to Senegal, as well as in several swiss cities.

We need your support to continue this mission.
