The Foyle Film Festival Intercultural & Anti Racism Programme is an important annual event offering primary, post-primary schools, colleges, universities, community groups, and the general public, a programme of international films, documentaries, presentations, workshops, and outreach screenings, exploring different themes and issues.
The event is aimed at raising awareness around issues such as racism, discrimination and harassment – including racist bullying. It seeks to educate children, young people, and the wider public, to accept, value, and embrace diversity in all its forms – whether race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, the poor, migrants, minorities, those with physical disabilities – as well as encouraging awareness of local and global issues like war, human rights abuses, and the environment.
The education programme showcases feature films, short films and documentaries from around the world in an effort to bring different landscapes, languages, beliefs, and cultures into the classroom.
