Auspices for One World Romania 2011

In 2011, as well as the first 3 editions of One World Romania, the festival is held under the auspices of the former Czech Republic President, Vaclav Havel. Alongside, Radu Filipescu, Karel Schwarzenberg and Kelemen Hunor show their support for this year’s festival taking place in Bucharest.

Vaclav Havel is the initiator of the One World Film Festival, held in Prague since 1999. Havel is a strong supporter of the human rights’ issue, being involved in this field ever since the 1970s. Among others, Václav Havel is also the chair of the International Committee of the Human Rights Foundation.

Radu Filipescu is founding member of the Group for Social Dialogue and of the Romanian Helsinki Committee. In the communist era, Radu Filipescu protested on several times against the system, being convincted at prison for  “propaganda against the socialist society”.

Since 2010, Karel Schwarzenberg is the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic. During the 1960s, Schwarzenberg became active in the resistance against the communist dictatorship in Czechoslovakia and became a prominent human rights advocate. From 1984 to 1991, he was chairman of the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights.

Kelemen Hunor is the Minister for Culture and National Heritage since 2009. Before starting his political career in 1997, he graduated the Veterinary Medicine and Philosophy Universities in Cluj.
