Watch Docs Human Rights in Film

This Polish film festival each year screens nearly a hundred documentaries that deal with themes of social injustice and human rights issues



And now for something a little serious. This Polish film festival each year screens nearly a hundred documentaries that deal with themes of social injustice and human rights issues, and around 70,000 attend the viewings of both international and Polish films. Films are divided into competition entries, new Polish films and propaganda. As well as the screenings there are panel discussions with human rights experts, politicians, journalists and of course the filmmakers themselves. Since it began in 2001, the organisers have also created the Travelling Film Festival, which has seen Watch Docs co-organising similar events in Brussels and Kiev. The festival lasts three days, and all events are free of charge.
