The jury members are IDA executive director Simon Kilmurry, Kenyan producer Sam Soko and Docaviv festival director Galia Bador.

The two awards come in addition to the festival’s three already-existing competitions: the Activist Competition, in cooperation with Amnesty International, featuring eight documentaries about the work of human rights activists; Camera Justitia, which zooms in on the importance of the rule of law and the fight against impunity; and Dutch Movies Matter, celebrating films from the Netherlands that open eyes to human rights.

Also new at the festival this year is an international industry programme running from 19-21 April. Eight selected projects from around the world will receive extensive training and coaching in the Movies That Matter Rough Cut Service with Sigal Yehuda (Close-Up), Judy Kibinge (DocuBox) and Andrea Prenghyová (dok.incubator), and will be pitched to decision makers on the last day.

On 20 and 21 April, the festival organises two impact days – Take on Film & Impact – in collaboration with Doc Society and FIFDH Geneva, with talks, presentations and panel discussions. Additionally, a series of webinars, master classes and panels will run from 17-22 April and will be available for free on the festival’s website (click here).
