“We believe that upholding human rights is a subject that concerns the whole of society and that it’s not possible to win the fight against injustice without the attention and pressure of society. Films have the power to highlight problems. Which raises the possibility of solving them. That’s the very reason that Amnesty is a proud partner of the Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest,” said the director of Amnesty International Czech Republic, Linda Sokačová, a member of this year’s jury. It also includes Czech actress Hana Vágnerová and Czech documentary-filmmaker Klára Tasovská.
During the festival the Czech branch of Amnesty International will again hand out an award for best human rights film: the Amnesty International Febiofest Award.
