One World International Human Rights Film Festival Win
The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan won the "Right to Know" category which is presented to the film that:
"draw[s] attention to unknown or suppressed issues concerning human rights. These films will compete for the Rudolf Vrba Award. As is traditional, the jury that decides on the best film in the Right to Know category will consist of activists and people working for international organisations that defend human rights."
The jury is named after the war hero Rudolf Vrba, who escaped from the Auschwitz concentration camp and subsequently fought as a partisan against the Nazis until the end of the Second World War.
