Explore, vote, participate : get on board for a new edition!

We are preparing an online festival that will give place to explorations. The FIFDH 2021 will be your laboratory!

The FIFDH team is in the midst of intensive work. We are looking forward to seeing you back from 5th to 14th March for our 19th edition, which neither covid nor home working could have prevented.

The contingencies of the pandemic are forcing us to change plans: we will not be able to gather in the movie theatres or in the cultural venues, where we would have dreamed of presenting our programme to you. It is thus the entire FIFDH that will come to you in March for an online edition!

This edition opens up new perspectives! We are going to explore together new interactive formats, during a festival that is going to be a place for experimentation and exchanges:


Vote for your favourite movies in the official selection. The FIFDH films will be available online and on demand. A Public Award will be discerned for the first time at the end of the festival.

Discover the most pressing issues of today and tomorrow. Every evening, the FIFDH will offer you a grand interview or a live debate with international guests.

Meet activists from all around the world. Daily events will bring you in touch with those who are changing the world, all the way from Afghanistan to Senegal.

Interact and ask your questions. The leading figures in politics, arts and activism attending the Festival will answer you!
Get on board for a long journey. Starting in March and continuing for a whole year, the Festival is taking you from Kinshasa to Geneva in the footsteps of women in the conquest of public space.

Express yourself. The FIFDH will launch a recorded radio programme in the municipalities of Greater Geneva.


And there is much more: we are preparing a programme that will provide you with a great opportunity for exploration and discovery. Share your opinion, be involved, get together, the FIFDH 2021 will be your personal laboratory!
