No Hate Film Festival
16-18 November

© NO HATE Filmfestival

Hatred is a strong human emotion which is often associated with feelings of animosity, anger or resentment, directed towards individuals, groups, entities, objects, behaviours, concepts or ideas.

It has been analysed and described by numerous psychologists and psychoanalysts – Freud defining the term as an ego state that wishes to destroy the source of its unhappiness, stressing that it is linked to the question of self-preservation.

At its strongest, hate may lead to so-called hate crimes, which are criminal acts motivated by the emotion.

At a lower, yet equally worrying level, hate speech is speech perceived to disparage a person or group based on their social or ethnic group.

So as to counter different forms of hate, the Europe for Citizens project “You are Welcome” in cooperation with the city of Dresden and the Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. have put together the international film festival “NO HATE”, taking place from 16-18 November at the museum ‘Technische Sammlungen Dresden’.

The Festival

Just a few days after the end of the “MOVE IT!” film festival comes the “NO HATE” festival as its perfect amendment. Although running for a shorter period of time, the festival will showcase ten incredibly powerful documentaries, each with a different theme but all with the same overreaching topic: how a community deals with conflict. All movies will be shown in their original language with English subtitles.

Along with the films which all stem from different European cities including, among others, Sarajevo, Thessaloniki, Moscow, Wroclaw, and Dresden, the festival also encourages the active participation of the people from different age groups, cultural and social backgrounds.

The interactive exhibition “PLEASE OPEN. Crates of Knowledge” conveys to guests the skills and advantages that refugees bring to Germany. The photographic exhibition “Street Stories” portrays scenes in Syria and Lebanon and a number of short films produced within the framework of the European project “YOU ARE WELCOME” will be screened in the exhibition rooms of the museum.

In addition, the festival will also offer three workshops held in English and German, Storytelling, Hate Speech Online, and Zine – make your own mini magazine! As a limited number of participants are allowed to take part in the workshop, prior registration is required, which may be done through the link below.

Entrance on Friday is free of charge, on Saturday a ticket to the museum allows attendance to the festival as well as to all of the permanent exhibitions of the museum (5 EUR Regular, 4 EUR Reduced).
