One World Festival comes to Prague

One World Festival comes to Prague
This sounds like a great event for all those chilling their beans in Prague hostels at the moment - if that's you, make sure you attend some of the shows that are being put on as part of the 12th One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.

Its programme includes movies that were made in the last 12 months and that have been awarded prizes at other industry happenings, although films that highlight important issues and violations of human rights also have their place on the agenda.

According to the organisers of the affair, this year will see over 80 discussion platforms being held to consider environmental concerns, foreign policy and human rights, with at least another 80 seminars being put on in regional centres around the country.

The show is going on between March 10th and 18th and there are also other exhibitions that can be frequented, such as the Archa Theatre's Real Aid display that reveals the work of people in need. Holidaymakers with a keen interest in being eco-friendly might also find that visiting the French Institute is an eye-opener, as exhibition A Big Challenge can be found there that has been put together by the Czech office of Friends of Earth.

If you can't make it, don't worry as there's the opportunity to view some select documentaries over the web, with pictures such as Below Sea Level, Barcelona or Die and Japan - A Story of Love and Hate being streamed until March 28th.

What's more, if you're in Brussels between April 12th and 19th, you'll be able to catch similar goings-on, with a screening of Iranian documentary Green Days opening the affair.
