Global Road Safety Film Festival 2017

24 October 2016

Images and films can be a powerful way to convey an important message. Films on road safety can play a very important role in raising awareness among public about dangers of the road. They can help in minimising those dangers, among others, through creating road safety culture by introducing proper road behaviour, by building safe road infrastructure and by permitting and using safe vehicles and equipment.

The 2017 Global Road Safety Film Festival will take place on Monday and Tuesday, 20th -21st February 2017 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. It will be held in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the Inland Transport Committee (ITC), which will be holding its annual session that same week. The Festival will reach out to the high-level participants of the 2017 Annual ITC Meeting, many of whom are the decision makers on road safety policies and their implementation.

The Global Road Safety Film Festival's mission is to see film makers to compete for best 2017 road safety films and for various special category awards.
