About us

 

Human rights culture has not yet taken root in Montenegro, although much has been done in that direction as far as the advancement of legal framework is concerned. One of the reasons lies in a weakly developed awareness about human rights, ways in which they can be enforced and upheld, forms of violations and mechanisms of protection. The question that motivated us to seek a different, more innovative and fresher way to communicate human rights-related problems was: how to make these issues more sensitive, more painful and more immediate? Provocative and direct, the medium of film is an excellent way to truly face the victims and the perpetrators, unbearable injustices and unbelievable bravery, the weakness and the strength of humanity in the contemporary world. 

The goal of Fast Forward Human Rights Film Festival, the first and only of its kind in Montenegro, is to raise awareness amongst the citizens of Montenegro about relevance of human rights, their protection and promotion, and foster a system of values which underpins harmonious relations between different people – whatever the grounds for their difference.

Fast Forward Human Rights Film Festival begins on the International Human Rights Day (10 December).During the past five editions of the Festival, which debuted in 2010, in cooperation with the Cultural Information Centre “Budo Tomović“, Montenegrin National Theatre and Rectorate of the University of Montenegro, we have shown 64 wonderful films from the most recent production, most of them winners of numerous nominations, awards and recognition all around the world. This way, the concept of human rights attracted a broad audience through an innovative and refreshing artistic approach. Growing attendance (more than 3, 500 visitors in 2014) at the Fast Forward Human Rights Film Festival fully justifies its existence, and it is especially encouraging that many of the visitors are young people, who we hope will be additionally inspired by this experience to stand up for their rights.

The value of the Fast Forward Human Rights Film Festival is also its regional component, reflected in continuing cooperation with similar festivals in the region, above all the Pravo Ljudski Film Festival from Sarajevo and later on Beldocsfrom Belgrade.
