TRUE HEROES FILMS INTRODUCTION
True Heroes Films (THF) is a Geneva-based media organisation with a global reach. Through filmmaking and digital storytelling we spread knowledge of human rights and support human rights defenders by raising their visibility. We collaborate with human rights defenders, human rights and humanitarian organisations, NGOs, UN agencies, international media outlets and broadcasters, cultural and academic institutions and governmental authorities to adapt their work into stories.
Who are "True Heroes"? All those who stand up for human rights and struggle to ensure dignity for all in the face of injustice.
A SELECTION OF OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
THF AT HRD SUMMIT
October 2018. The second Human Rights Defenders World Summit took place in Paris. On 18 December the action plan is presented to the United Nations General Assembly. It contains a concrete set of measures and calls for a lasting commitment from States to protect human rights defenders and create a more favourable environment for their work. Watch the video True Heroes Films produced on the Human Rights Defenders and the importance of the Summit. Here you find the short film (2'20'') and the long film (8 min)
With the goal of creating a Hall of Fame of prominent human rights defenders, we launched in 2017 the first phase of the Digest of Human Rights Awards. The second phase is the Digest of Laureates of these awards to be realised in 2018. This platform helps to support, protect and promote Human Rights Defenders.
70 YEARS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
In collaboration with the UN we produced a series of 30 films on all the articles of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, celebrating it's 70th anniversary and how it has impacted people's daily lives. You can easily find all the stories on our Twitter account @TrueHeroesFilms
