Vienna’s first international human rights film festival is a platform of cinematic art and critical discourse, a space of encounter and dialogue, and a meeting point for young innovative filmmakers, both local and international. We consider cinema not only an artistic form wherein narrative experiences are performed or created, but also an opportunity for the audience to step out of their comfort zone and into dialogue with new challenging realities.

In the this human world 2016 festival APPEAR hosted one night with participation of the PROSOWO II project.

The informal group of organisations, called the “Donor Harmonization Group” was initiated by EP-Nuffic and SIU and meets annually to increase exchange and collaboration among its members.

The group is open for organisations involved in development cooperation programmes and the higher education and research sector with an interest in donor harmonization. Since the first seminar in 2010 European and international funding organisations working in higher education collaboration in developing countries have met in an annual forum to share good practices and experience and create collaborative networks.

The APPEAR Office hosted the 2016 seminar in Vienna.
