Movies that Matter judges every project on its individual merits. Movies that Matter is open for innovative and new plans.

Founded in March 2006, Movies that Matter followed in the footsteps of the Amnesty International Film Festival. It continued and enhanced the festival’s activities, both in the Netherlands and abroad, thus creating a unique organisation that serves as an international platform for films of interest dealing with human rights and social justice, and for their makers.

Applications must be submitted and executed by a local organization. A filmmaker distributing his/her own film(s) can also be supported, provided that the project is executed in close cooperation with a local organization.

The deadline for applications is 15 September 2013 and to apply, click here.
