UNESCO Awards Czech Film Festival One World

The following is excerpted from Prague's Daily Monitor, 01/03/2007

UNESCO has given a special mention to the One World International Documentary Film Festival focused on human rights annually held in the Czech Republic. UNESCO has been presenting awards for human rights education every other year since 1978. In 1990 the award was given to then Czechoslovak and later Czech president Vaclav Havel. Havel reportedly proposed the candidacy of the Czech festival, presenting documentaries focused on human rights issues.

The One World festival has been annually held in Prague and other Czech towns since 1999. Last year, the event offered almost 120 films from 40 countries. This year´s festival will be held from February 28 to March 30. Click here for further information on One World 2007.
