The United Nations has, in response to the new challenges the corona crisis leaves behind, launched a program, “Build Back Better”.
The purpose is to support the reconstruction of the world. The pandemic has widened the gaps in society and poverty. The focus will be on Agenda 2030, the Global Goals. We want to highlight the challenges that have become so obvious during the corona crisis; the lack of justice, equality, unequal distribution of resources and discrimination; of the elderly, of minorities and more.
As in previous years, we want to spread knowledge about human rights through film and panel discussions, but we want to complement and develop the concept with other cultural activities, such as music, dance, theater, conversation and art. The ambition is to broaden the concept from film festival to festival and to touch on these issues in several ways.
