Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival
NIHRFF is Germany’s oldest and biggest human rights film festival. With its art house cinema background, it is the leading forum for outstanding feature films, documentaries and animated productions, which have human rights as their main focus.
The biannual festival features an international competition, which presents artistically exceptional human rights films, an international forum, an extensive supporting programme, exhibitions and international guests.
NIHRFF presents the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award (worth EUR 2500) for the winner of the International Competition, an Audience Award (EUR 1000) for the most popular film from Competition and Forum (EUR 1000), and the Open Eyes Youth Jury Award (EUR 1000). One of NIHRFF’s hallmarks is its successful school film project which includes school screenings, a youth jury, and youth reporters.
