  • Pravo Ljudski has established itself as a specific public space to engender social action and civic activism by promoting socially engaged art, cinema, non-formal education and cross-cultural dialogue. 

    Pravo Ljudski promotes personal rights and freedoms, democratic values and a non-discriminatory approach as a basis for affecting the public opinion on human rights and equality. Moreover, Pravo Ljudski aims to empower every individual and youth particularly to actively participate in public life.

    By presenting socially responsible and committed art forms and cinema from around the world, discussions and debates and promotion of civic activism and engagement, Pravo Ljudski constantly addresses topics and problems from our everyday lives in an informal setting. Festival will show documentaries and organise different workshops.

    The 16th PLJFF will be held in a hybrid format, from December 1st to 6th at cinema Meeting Point and then from December 7th to 17th online, on the festival web platform. This year’s program focuses on political and artistic acts that call into question patriarchal and colonial conventions and opens up new and interdependent perspectives on power, knowledge, and ecology. The festival will screen 50 films divided into seven programs through four thematic units.

    The 16th edition of the Pravo Ljudski Film Festival will kick off with Camille & Ulysse, which comes straight from its World Premiere at IDFA to Sarajevo. Directed by Diana Toucedo, featuring the philosophers Vinciane Despret and Donna Haraway the film was adapted from texts "The Camille Stories" and "Autobiographie d’un poulpe".

    Diana Toucedo will be joining the audience in Sarajevo at the opening night of the festival!

    The closing film of this year’s festival is a work by Austrian filmmaker Ralo Mayer that delineates “ecologies of contemporary history” linking past futures and present-day speculations. Mayer’s film Extra-Terrestrial Ecologies (Retroflectors: the astronaut, the robot, the alien) deals with the oikos – with the house that is wanted, and therefore home, and haunted, and therefore not a home. In the absence of a foundational nature and in the presence of various post-human bodies – both more insistent than existent in their traces and remains –, we see oikos´ ecology turn into hauntecology. It’s all a matter of being together; which begs the question: with whom?
