The year 2007 saw the introduction of our Human Rights Film Festival Award recognising the human rights work and involvement of personalities from the film world. This year the Award goes to actress Pilar Bardem for her personal defence of human rights, democracy, peace, and her support and work in favour of the most disadvantaged causes and groups.
Previous winners of the Award are the producer Elías Querejeta, the filmmaker José Luis Borau, the Serbian director Goran Paskaljević, the British documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto, the Madrilenian actress and director Iciar Bollain, the documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzmán and the director Robert Guédiguian. All are united by their work to defend the rights of human beings in cinematic trajectories spanning several decades.
