The international documentary film festival One World is the flagship of the People in Need organisation. Our aim is to help people who have lost their security, dignity or freedom for various reasons. We have been doing this professionally, transparently and fearlessly for more than 20 years.
We try to describe the complex relationships and interconnectedness between societies, countries, cultures, histories, environments and economies in today’s globalised world. Authored documentaries help us to communicate not only with the adult public but also with young people in schools.
Copyright freedom is what connects our films and makes every work exceptional at the same time. The films we represent at the festival are a reflection of the era, a mosaic of human characters and a tool of critical thinking. They reflect current events in areas such as human relations, political regimes, new technologies and climate change.
We present contemporary documentaries from all over the world, awarded at prestigious film festivals, together with discussions and side events accessible to the public.
Welcome to our page! We hope that you find something that floats your boat in our programme and become part of our One World community.
