Festival de Cine MÁS

( Managua , Nicaragua )

"Festival de Cine MÁS" was founded in 2015 as a response to the vacuum and non-existence of a human rights discourse in schools, colleges, universities and public spaces in the country.

We consider it necessary to provide, through films and debates, a space for dialogue, reflection and exchange of information on the topic of human rights.

Our film festival wants to contribute directly to MORE young people, women and men to strengthen critical thinking about their realities and identify collective strategies to fully exercise their rights.
