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

70 YEARS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

In collaboration with the UN we produce a series of films on the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, celebrating it's 70th anniversary. Around the globe we film the stories of its impact on people's daily lives.  

 HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS

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.

TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

Together with leading organisations on technological innovation for human rights and humanitarian issues, like The Port, CERN and Global Humanitarian Lab we visualise and bring the solutions to the people who need them.
