Mov(i)e Activism is a traveling film festival that focuses on showcasing different forms of socio-political activism via documentaries. Our goal is to make under-represented courageous actions more visible in order to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment based on inclusion, equity, fairness, and justice can make a difference. Using documentary films as a platform for exploring some of the most current issues, our film caravan wants to create an opportunity to spark meaningful dialogue and inspire social, political, economic, and environmental change.

After Riga and Bologna, the second edition of “Mov(i)e Activism” is now coming to Berlin!

During three days of the festival, we will present a diverse selection of documentaries coming from the margins and dealing with the topics of feminism, sexual harassment, workers' self-management, occupied territories, corporate exploitation, resource extraction, neoliberal policies, and many others.

This year we are proud to announce that the majority of our selected films originate from non-European countries and all of them are directed by womxn.
