Film Festival of Human Rights in Lugano

The Film Festival aims to inform and educate a varied audience about the problems linked to the respect of Human Rights, proposing an open forum that highlights the universality and the different facets of the issue.

The goal is to sensitize a large audience through a cinematic program and moments of reflection and discussion, enriched by the important participation of some external guests.

The festival puts a special emphasis on the participation of youngsters and adolescents, giving them privileged spaces, proposing days dedicated to students of the high schools and Universities of the area.

COOPI Suisse has been collaborating with the Festival since 2014.
