HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL Co-founded by URK and the Multimedia Institute in 2002, the Human Rights Film Festival (HRFF) has matured to become a reputable event on the Zagreb cultural calendar. Usually held in December, the festival casts a spotlight on various themes relating to human rights, equality and social justice, and schedules a careful selection of feature films, documentaries and panel discussions. Originally conceived by journalist and film-maker Ivan Ramljak, the festival was subsequently curated by Vanja Kaluđerčić and Dora Baras. Its present Programming Director, Petar Milat, sums up the role of the festival: “There is an important, perhaps unstated supposition that any discussion about human rights is, in an odd way, defensive. During the Nineties, to advocate human rights in our society often led to being labelled as a foreign agent, or as one who didn’t belong here. However, in the last few years, human rights have been labelled an instrument of neoliberal capitalism, in which they serve as a mask to cover exploitation occurring on some material level. Trapped between the two ends of the spectrum, institutions and individuals who campaign for human rights tend to adopt a strangely defensive position. HRFF, on the other hand, takes up an offensive position. In that way, we don’t get hindered by trying to legitimise human rights as an important theme. We simply start from the spontaneous need to promote a culture of human rights.”

Postoji jedna bitna, možda neizrečena pretpostavka, a to je da je govor o ljudskim pravima na neki čudan način uvijek defenzivan. U devedesetima, u našem društvu, zalaganje za ljudska prava moglo je značiti da vas se etiketira kao strane agente, kao one koji ne pripadaju ovdje. S druge strane, posljednjih se godina ljudska prava etiketiraju kao instrument neoliberalnog kapitalizma, kojem su ona samo maska za prikrivanje izrabljivanja koje se događa na nekoj materijalnoj osnovi. Između te dvije pozicije i neke čudne defenzivnosti institucija, pojedinaca i intelektualaca koji se bore ili zalažu za ljudska prava, HRFF u tom smislu zauzima ofenzivan stav. Pritom ne ulazimo u legitimiranje zašto je to važna tema, već naprosto polazimo od spontane potrebe da se kultura ljudskih prava promovira. Petar Milat
