The International Human Rights Film Festival in Albania (IHRFFA) comes with a new way of educating people with the human rights concepts. Constituted as a cultural platform for the dissemination and awareness rising of the people on human rights issues, it operates through using image as its instrument.
IHRFFA includes in its program documentary, fiction and animated films dealing with human rights that are sensitive especially for the Albanian society. This event brings to the public’s attention similar experiences from all over the world and by using image as its tool, the impact is stronger and direct.
Events of this kind are necessary for the Albanian society which is suffering different social and human rights problems such as: human trafficking, children frustration, health care, etc.
As an initiative of the Academy of Film and Multimedia Marubi since 2006, other human rights organisations operating in Albania have joined the cause such as OSCE Presence, UNICEF, Albanian Helsinki Committee, Utica College, a number of Embassies in Tirana such as the German Embassy, French, Austrian, Swiss, U.S. Embassy, Albanian Institute of Media, etc. Furthermore, the festival is supported as well by local institutions such as the Municipality of Tirana, the Ministry of Culture and the National Film Center.
Through the years, the International Human Rights Film Festival in Albania has become the event which brings on all together human rights activists, selected films and the best film-makers. This event makes us realise the importance of our human dignity and the importance of being human.
