Hivos was founded in 1968, inspired by humanist values. Our founders held the conviction that development work should not be linked to missionary work, and true cooperation presumes respect for differing beliefs. These convictions are still reflected in our work. We believe that human life in its many forms is valuable, and that people are filled with potential. Living a life in freedom and dignity, with respect for each other and the planet, leads to greater individual wellbeing and fair, vibrant societies.
BWFF is organised by Beirut Film Society, an NGO that works closely with Lebanese and International filmmakers and film entities for the promotion of responsible filmmaking.
