(Finland/Norway/Denmark/France), and Celina Escher's Fly So Far (Sweden).

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).
