“MOVE IT!”?
Go and watch it!

(Copyright: MOVE IT!)

Once the last summer days have passed and the nights become longer – and the weather not as nice – it’s the perfect time to enjoy good movies. For us, a good movie should be entertaining, but it should also provide something to think about. Do you agree? Great, then we’d like to introduce you to the “MOVE IT! Filmfestival”.

The festival

The festival’s focus is what makes it so special: Since 2004, the latest national and international documentary and feature films relating to topics of human rights and development are shown. It was founded by Akifra e.V., an organization focusing on children’s and women’s rights.

The program consists of not only the films themselves, but also of discussions with directors, producers and experts (e.g. activists) and concerts.

This festival knows no age: The film educational program “MOVE IT! Young” presents two films for kids and teenagers, which makes the festival a wonderful experience for the entire family.

Not a movie but very interesting: The Peace Slam! Don’t miss it!

Inspired by the United Nations International Day of Peace each year 21 September the international group started to slam about the quite broad topic PEACE first time in 2016 in Dresden. International researchers working in different Dresden research institutions gathered to prepare a moderated 8-10 minute slam in English for an international audience in Dresden. That was the priming for further performances and a growing Mic4Peace slammer group ever since.
