Oslo has long been a city dedicated to promoting peace around the world. It plays host to a multitude of NGOs and human rights organisations, including the Noble Peace Institute, and its iconic City Hall famously serves as the setting for the Noble Peace Prize award ceremony every December.
With this background, Oslo is the perfect place for Human Rights Human Wrongs, a special film festival featuring documentaries on various human rights issues from around the world.
A wide variety of films will be screened over the week-long event, by directors from around the world and covering subjects such as the refugee experience, environmental disasters, mental health and the rise of right-wing populism. Several lectures and workshops will be held as well.
All films are in English or have English subtitles. For specific times and locations, visit the film festival’s website.
