School screenings 2015 –  from March 2 to March 6

With the support from the Republic and canton of Geneva, and in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.


Ten years ago, as a contribution to the World Programme for Human Rights Education launched by the UN in 2005, the festival initiated a pedagogical program intended for pupils of the canton of Geneva. This particular program proposes activities for the duration of the festival and throughout the year within schools, and aspires to mobilize the young public’s attention towards issues related to human rights violations.
