About

The Swedish Human Rights Film Festival

From March 16 to March 18, 2018 Lund will host the third Swedish Human Rights Film Festival.

The festival is a unique blend of new human rights films combined with fresh analysis from researchers and experts so festival goers can go deeper and get new insights on the major human rights issues of our time.

The initiative comes from the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.

The Institute runs the festival in cooperation with Kino/Folkets Bio in Lund. Lund University and the Association of Foreign Affairs in Lund are a major cooperation partner.

The festival is co-produced by Lund municipality,  Film i Skåne, and Folkuniversitetet in Lund.

Other partners include Rå Epok, the Grand Deli LundWasabi Sushi, Raw Food House, and Grönt o’ Gött.

Kino/Folkets Bio i Lund

Folkets Bio got its first theatre in 1987 at Södran Mejeriet. Seven years later in 1994, Kino opened. Kino/Folkets Bio is a non-profit and contributes to expanding the selection of films in Lund.

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law combines evidence-based human rights research with direct engagement with international organisations, governments, national human rights institutions, the justice sector, local and regional authorities, universities, and the business sector to deepen understanding and strengthen respect for human rights and international humanitarian law.

The institute has been affiliated with Lund University in Sweden, one of the world’s top 100 rated universities, since 1984. Today, we are around 60 people located in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Jakarta, Lund, Nairobi, Phnom Penh and Stockholm.
