Festival start: 27 July 2021      Festival end: 31 July 2021

Human Rights Defense will, quite possibly, always be an unfinished struggle. Especially relevant in troubled times, its promotion must be pictured as an unbreakable commitment of the modern men and women and of the societies we aspire to build. Culture will always be its main weapon, as an essential tool to the creation of dialogues and bridges that can connect us to others. Also, it will always be a process of imagination and ambition for a US as diverse as humanity, as collective as nature. If no Man is (or should be) an isolated island, how can individuals and communities preserve their identity in a peaceful, constructive and enriching relationship with their surroundings? How can we make diversity our collective strength and not its opposite? How can each man and woman be able to leave their “islands” and connect with each other, without ceasing to be who they are? How can we, today, imagine and act upon the construction of a collective future where everyone truly has a place?

It is in response to these questions that NOMA AZORES - International Human Rights Film Festival emerges. A space where cinema serves as a meeting point for awareness, knowledge and action. NOMA AZORES is organized by the City Council of Ponta Delgada and produced by Associação Cultural - Silêncio Sonoro.
