PURPOSE

 

Formed in 2006, the ‘We The Peoples’ Film Festival’ continues to strive to increase awareness and support in the UK and global film industry for the development work of the UN, its agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations.

We believe that raising awareness for development, security & peace, and human rights encourages future generations to make a positive difference to people’s lives in the UK and across the world.

 
 
 

PROBLEM

 

We The Peoples Film Festival aims to raise important issues associated with the United Nations Three Pillars of Freedom:

Freedom from want: Sustainable Development Goals beyond 2015; The World we want.
Freedom from fear: Through efforts to bring about collective security and peace.
Freedom to live in dignity: Through the application of justice for all, underpinned by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

And in protecting the Environment. And to encourage young filmmakers and creatives to work together to raise awareness of the United Nations Three Pillars of Freedom and the Sustainable Development Goals.
