Under the Mask

The Centre for Civic Education (CCE) is organizing the XI edition of the Montenegrin FAST FORWARD Human Rights Film Festival 2020 with the support of traditional media partners.

This year’s edition of the FAST FORWARD Festival will be held in the traditional period, from 10 to 14 December, but due to the current epidemiological situation in the online format.

Besides the films that the audience from Montenegro will have the opportunity to watch online, a special accompanying programme will include panel discussions with participants from the country and the region, as well as an exhibition.

Recognizing the public importance of the FAST FORWARD Festival and nurturing the principle of social responsibility, support for the implementation of the Festival this year is provided by the public service Radio-Television of Montenegro (RTCG), with the portal RTCG.me, and the independent daily and portal Vijesti and TV Vijesti, with which memorandums of cooperation were signed today. Also, FAST FORWARD is supported by the CdM portal, Radio Berane and Radio Kotor.

The FAST FORWARD Human Rights Film Festival Montenegro contributes to the development of awareness of the importance of human rights and the creation of a harmonious relationship between the diverse on any basis. Through the film, viewers emotionally and suggestively experience the personal stories of those who are victims of human rights violations, but also strong fighters for change, which contributes to understanding sensitive aspects of human rights, otherness in our societies and lives, and the importance of civic activism.

On the repertoire of the XI FAST FORWARD Festival, the Montenegrin audience will have the opportunity to watch powerful and motivating films of the latest production, which have already managed to position themselves at prestigious festivals and receive numerous awards.

The motto of this year’s UBRZAJ Festival is Under the Mask.
