About WE CARE FILM FESTIVAL
Brotherhood, an NGO, founded the We Care Film Festival in 2003. UNESCO and UN Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC) came on board as founding partners of this pioneering film festival along with the Government of India’s National Trust. The We Care Film Festival encourages universal participation and seeks entries of short films and documentaries on disability issues from all over the world.
Recently, We Care Film Festival was the chosen partner of the UNESCO’s Unique International Conference “From Exclusion to Empowerment: The Role of ICTs for People with Disabilities which was held from 24-26 November 2014 at VigyanBhawan, New Delhi. During the concluding session a lots of participants from across the globe appreciated the efforts of the film festival and recommended that We Care Film Festival should be an integral part of the above said conference in future also. This was noted and included in the Outcome document of UNESCO International Conference.
The film festival’s efforts underline the UN’s commitment to inclusion – in both development and human rights perspectives and that is why We Care Film Festival will be a powerful platform for the UNIC as they have embraced the next International Decade for Persons with Disabilities by the UN for the period 2013-2022.
The WE CARE Film Festival is held annually to raise awareness about disability issues, dispel misconceptions and prejudices about persons with disabilities, drive attitudinal and behavior change and foster their integration into society. The Festival aims to promote a rights-based approach to people with disabilities that treats them as people first and focuses on abilities and positives rather than disabilities.
The We Care Film Festival is a pioneering effort initiated in 2003 by Brotherhood, an NGO working on bringing disability issues into mainstream human rights discourse. Since then it has travelled extensively through India, covering more than a 114 venues. It has also taken its message overseas and has been showcased in more than a dozen countries.
Since its inception, the We Care Film Festival has become a leading ambassador for raising awareness on the rights of persons with disability across the globe and is a beacon for promoting a positive attitude towards disability. It also acts as a vehicle in bringing disability issues to the fore amongst advocacy bodies, government agencies, civil society and specifically the youth, affecting both institutional and grassroots level attitudinal and behavioural change.
This annual international travelling and educational film festival of shorts films and documentaries on disability issues is showcased at universities, educational institutions and schools and aims sensitizing and engaging youth in the disability sector on the one hand, and instilling confidence in persons with disability on the other.
The We Care Film Festival archive has a repository of more than 650 short films and documentaries out of which 90 are award winning. These have been showcased to a large global audience:-
