The programme is inspired by ‘Law and Literature’, a branch within the fields of law and literature that focuses on the interdisciplinary connections between them. For the festival, a committee of renowned jurists and film experts selected the canon of the 25 best films that explore justice and jurisdiction. The committee consists of LLM Winnie Sorgdrager, Prof. LLM Dr. Jeanne Gaakeer, Prof. LLM Dr. Pieter Ippel, René Appel, Leo Hannewijk en LLM Jan Loorbach.
The films of the canon will be introduced by filmmakers, writers and legal experts. Furthermore, there is an educational section and a section centred on (violations of) human rights.
