Prague, 2 AprilAt five minutes to twelve… literally. That is precisely the time when the jurors made their final decisions regarding the winners of this year’s One World Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. Just after that, the festival had to be interrupted. Nonetheless, the awards will find their recipients despite the government-ordered restrictions. The festival organisers, working in collaboration with Mall TV, decided to arrange an online awards ceremony. The winners were announced on Thursday, 2 April. A recording of the live broadcast is available on the following website. But that’s not the end of the festival.

However, if the situation allows, we will try to organise the regional festivals this autumn.
