International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) and over 20 other major film festivals jointly organise We Are One: A Global Film Festival, running from 29 May to 7 June. The online event features films from each festival and will raise money for Covid-19 relief funds. The entire programme will be available on YouTube for free.
The initiative offers films from all over the world, curated by festivals from all over the world. At the same time, you’ll be able to support relief efforts for those affected by Covid-19. The festival will benefit the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as local relief partners in each region.
IFFR has chosen to support the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), a global organisation determined to save the lives of refugees. UNHCR advocates the inclusion of refugees in emergency social protection schemes and helps the most vulnerable with one-off cash assistance.
The films will be available for free on YouTube. More information on the IFFR film selection will follow soon.
