One World Romania is Romania’s only documentary festival dedicated to human rights. The prestigious film event was founded twelve years ago upon the initiative of the Czech Centre in Bucharest as a branch of One World Czech Republic. Over the years, it has evolved into an independent festival with its own program. The most successful films of each edition are presented across Romania.
