Sign up to the Circle of Friends

Support the FIFDH and benefit from special offers by joining the Circle of Friends of the Festival.

Every year, the FIFDH enables personalities and artists from all over the world to make their voices heard in Geneva before the public and the media, parallel to the UN Human Rights Council.

By joining the Circle of Friends, you are showing support for a unique place of artistic creation and dialogue. Every year, the FIFDH offers the best of international cinema devoted to human rights, debates on issues at the heart of current affairs as well as exclusive events.

Your support also enables us to develop our cultural mediation projects: screenings and discussions in prisons, in accomodation centres for migrant people, in hospitals or in schools. The FIFDH makes cinema a pedagogical, therapeutic and integration tool.

By joining the Circle of Friends, you allow us to develop these projects throughout the year. To thank you for your support, you will regularly receive special offers for film screenings, plays or exhibitions in Geneva.
