The FIFDH team is very proud and honoured to receive the médaille Genève Reconnaissante 2021 from the City of Geneva. This distinction rewards the persistent work of all its collaborators, who have worked towards a succesful Festival for 20 years, and is even more significant after two online editions. We are very happy to share this medal with Fabienne Abramovich, who has been working for many years in favour of the cultural actors of Geneva and Switzerland.

A medal for human rights defenders

This medal is also, and above all, the one of the activists, filmmakers and all who daily fight for human rights, and for whom we have the mission to speak up at the FIFDH. 

Finally, this medal is the one of the Festival's audience, which has supported us, accompanied us and given resonance to the causes and actions supported by the FIFDH for 20 years. Thank you all!

The medal ceremony will take place mid-September 2021
