Movies that Matter to hold Human Rights learning and networking series for professionals: applications open until January 8

Cinema Without Borders will be held during the Movies That Matter festival in The Hague in March 2023, and is open to professionals from across Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe at all stages of their career.

Human Rights-focused documentary and film organisation (and member of The Hague Humanity Hub) Movies That Matter will be holding its Cinema Without Borders initiative at the Movies That Matter film festival in The Hague between March 25 and March 29, 2023. The five-day event will be a mixture of masterclasses and networking opportunities, and is intended to help international film festival organisers to supercharge their skillset and network.

Topics to be covered will include everything from making an effective programme and fostering debate, to fundraising, impact strategies; and marketing to and communicating with various audiences.

And, perhaps the most important facet of the programme: travel and registration costs are covered! This is to ensure that there is a diverse mixture of backgrounds and opinions during the course of the series. To apply, you must be a professional working in and around film festivals, have a link to a reliable non-profit, and be available for all five days of the programme.
