Evaluation Perspective, the International Human Rights Film Festival in Nuremberg is the only festival in Germany which is specifically dedicated to the issue of Human Rights. Perspective will be presenting ethically and socially committed productions from all parts of the world, which combine a formal quality with a humanistic philosophy. The festival includes a competition, retrospectives, workshops and debates, discussion with festival guests, concerts, exhibitions and educational screenings. Perspective is a bi-annual event in a thematic connection with the parallel organized Human Rights conference and the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award. The festival is a founding member of the International Human Rights Film Network launched in 2004 in Prague.
