After an open call, we have appointed three individuals who come from different continents than Europe – African, South American, and Asian. We received numerous applications, and while all applications were worth considering, we could only hire three individuals.

They have extensive knowledge and expertise in their respective regions and will also advise on films from these regions. Additionally, Tereza Rozálie Koldová will join the team to improve the selection of films for our competition: Slovakia and the Czech Republic for Human Rights. They will work with Eva Križková, the festival director, Katarína Gališinová, the film programmer and coordinator, and Michaela Kolláriková, the coordinator of the One World in Schools Programme, to organize the 25th festival.
