Centre for Civic Education (CGO) has been working intensively on the organisation of sixth FAST FORWARD Human Rights Film Festival 2015, by preparing a quality and diverse programme, which the audience of this already traditional Festival expects.
By recognising the importance of this Festival, ID Vijesti decided to once again provide contribution in its implementation. In this regard, Daliborka Uljarević, CCE Executive Director and Željko Ivanović, ID Vijesti Executive Director signed the Agreement on cooperation, as a result of mutual understanding concerning the need to contribute to the development of culture of human rights where intensive communication and cooperation among all stakeholders is necessary, especially between the media and non-governmental organisations, which could, in addition to the institutions, significantly influence the improvement of this framework. Based on the Agreement, Vijesti will dedicate full media attention and ensure the coverage of Festival within its reporting, promote the Festival with its announcement, and participate in the work of the Council of Festival through their representative. CCE will present Vijesti in its promotional material issued by the Festival, and give the priority right for interviews with guests of the Festival in line with the interest of Vijesti, as main media sponsor among print media.
