The Building Bridges Human Rights Film Festival is an annual event specially dedicated to human rights issues in celebration of Human Rights Day. Each year, the festival brings together Italian and international directors, artists, academics and audiences under various themes in the context of human rights.
This year, the theme of the festival is borders. There were screenings of films on various human rights issues related to borders (i.e. migration, human trafficking), discussions with directors, a cocktail hour and food! And most important of all, these were all provided for FREE!
