Humans of Film Festival
The Humans of Film Festival developed from the Humans of Film Amsterdam street photography blog, a platform where personal stories of Amsterdam residents are published. This project shares the personal impact that film can have on people and finding representation and recognition. It also gradually reveals the lack of diversity in the film landscape. The festival takes place at various locations, at Ketelhuis, Pazzanistraat 4 and Podium Mozaiëk, Bos en Lommerweg 191and will return to the city in 2023. PLEASE NOTE: Listed dates and starting times for 2023 are subject to change.
'Human interest movies'
Initiator Feargal Agard set up a film festival that focuses on so-called 'human interest films', a niche still missing in the Dutch film landscape.
Humans of Film Festival means films that focus on people, their experiences and their living environment. In an increasingly polarizing society on a social and political level, it tries to create space for confrontations, where stories are told and shared by people who are not allowed to speak out.
According to the organizers, it is more important than ever to share stories from and by people who are often not heard in our society and beyond and shed light on social realities that have been given too little attention for far too long.
But the festival wants to go further than addressing the problems in the world. Through Q&As, talks and debriefings with various speakers and representatives of local organizations, the organizers want to make the universal topics tangible for the Amsterdam public.
