Guidelines of assistance

Ciné Droit Libre’s provides a platform for filmmakers and journalists around the world, especially for those whose works are censored or have broadcast difficulties. Films focussing on Africa, human rights and freedom of the press are appreciated.


Ciné Droit Libre is a film festival that shows the works of filmmakers and journalists whose works were censored. The mobile cinema program opens up the debate about all sorts of abuses, the lack of awareness of fundamental rights, the constant fear of speaking out, and serves as an effective remedy for the people. Its aim is to reduce human rights violations by increasing civic education and raising public awareness among both the people and the authorities.
