The Knowmad Short Film Festival is a creative effort of the European Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies on Human Rights and Sciences - Knowmad Institut; that opens intercultural exchange and contributes to making visible the alternative narratives that reflect the current state of human dignity.
This festival aims to turn information into knowledge.
The festival seeks to promote SDGs 10, 16, and 17.
The second edition of the Knowmad Short Film Festival (KSFF) seeks to give visibility to the current situation of human dignity and the mental health. The goal of the second installment of the festival is to promote and celebrate the diversity of human cultures, mental health awareness and peace builders through the lens of filmmaking.
The KSFF will be a hybrid festival using online and offline spaces to engage audiences in celebrating cultural diversity through the lens of dignity and human rights.
The KSFF contributes to the dissemination of the experiences of communities and individuals who contribute to the construction of peace, the preservation of the ethnosphere, promote sustainable development, and generate opportunities in a resilient and contextual way.
