Founded in March 2006, Movies that Matter followed in the footsteps of the Amnesty International Film Festival. It continued and enhanced the festival’s activities, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
Our mission is to open eyes to human rights. We use film to stir the debate on human rights, sustainability and the fight against injustice. We believe that film has the unprecedented capacity to raise awareness and provide new insight. What cannot be accomplished by spoken and written language, is sometimes achieved by motion picture.
We create impact by asking questions and providing context and insight. We screen films in combination with a vast expansion programme, in the form of discussions, introductions, Q&A sessions, workshops and teaching aids
