One World Film Festival: The World in Motion

The World has been set into motion. After the Arabic revolutions, a wave of protests has also gripped Europe since last year. If anyone thought of civic activism as of being on the brink of extinction, they could have realised that is not the case. Also in Slovakia, people took to the streets and did not even hesitate to freeze.

Films from the 13th One World festival will show that even when the objectives and the means of protest actions from Egypt, through Greece, up to the USA are different, the connecting element is the strong will of young people who demand a change of the established order.

The One World festival will take place in Bratislava between December 3 and 9, 2012. In addition to Bratislava, after the festival in Bratislava is over, viewers will have the opportunity to watch selected films until April 2013 in more than 20 other cities across Slovakia – within the One World in Regions screenings.
