About project

The festival films will be screened from October to December in cinema halls, houses of culture, universities, schools, youth clubs, book stores, libraries, etc. The screenings will also take place in penal colonies, detention centres, and educational facilities for future penitentiary workers. 

 

We are assured that every truly artistic documentary is a powerful act of struggle for moral and therefore democratic values. It is an instrument which evokes humane motives in people, teaches and inspires them to protect these motives in themselves and others. The effect from screenings is intensified by meetings with renowned human rights defenders, filmmakers, cultural activists and artists, journalists; thematic discussions, Q&A, disputes, legal workshops for young audiences, forum theatres, “living libraries” and other human rights educational events.

 

Partners of Docudays UA International Travelling Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in the Ukrainian regions are 52 leading youth and human rights NGOs.
