We The Peoples Film Festival




A festival to promote and screen new films which show how the challenges facing the United Nations, development agencies and human rights organisations are tackled.




There is a lack of awareness about many of the challenges being faced across the world and the work undertaken by the United Nations and other organisations to address them.




Formed in 2006, the ‘We The Peoples’ Film Festival continues to strive to increase awareness and support in the UK and global film industry for the development work of the UN, its agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations.

The Festival harnesses the power of film to raise awareness of development, security and peace, and human rights to encourage future generations to make a positive difference to people’s lives in the UK and across the world.

This year’s We The Peoples Film Festival starts on 11th November 2018 with screenings taking place throughout November across a range of venues in London.

The application deadline has now passed and the team is now developing the project.
