Film screening for International Human Rights Day
On the occasion of International Human Rights Day and in collaboration with the Movies that Matter Foundation, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands invites you to a screening of three special human rights films on December 14-16, 2022
The Netherlands Human Rights Policy
Human rights are the cornerstone of the Netherlands' foreign policy. In order to raise awareness about human rights around the world, the Netherlands partnered up with Movies that Matter.
Movies and documentaries are able to convey a story in a way that words alone cannot, and human rights documentaries open our eyes to human rights violations and spark debate and dialogue.
We hope that a human rights dialogue will be kick-started by screening these films.
