The street fight for democracy across five continents will be screened in a series of documentaries at the 2015 edition of One World Romania Festival, the international documentary film festival dedicated to human rights. This year, the eighth edition will be held in Bucharest during March 16 – 22 under the motto “kino-maidan”, shedding light on some of the most pressing issues of today’s societies.

The films will be divided into several thematic sections, which include: a section on people reclaiming democracy out in the street, one about capitalism installed in former communist countries, a section dedicated to the delicate transition from adolescence to adulthood. The public will also have the chance to see documentaries nominated for the 2015 Oscars and new Romanian documentaries.

Screenings are scheduled for Cinema Studio, Cinema Elvire Popesco and the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant. The official opening of the festival will take place on March 16 at Cinema Pro. For now, fans can purchase pre-sale festival passes, available on Eventbook.ro at the price of RON 50, in a limited number of 50. Tickets for the screenings will be available shortly on the same website.

One World Romania Festival is the only documentary festival dedicated to human rights, organized in 2015 in partnership with the Czech Centre in Bucharest and with the support of the Rule of Law Program South East Europe of the Konrad-Adenauer- Stiftung.
