Join Médecins Sans Frontières Korea (MSF Korea) as an official sponsor of the humanitarian film festival- FILMS WITHOUT BORDERS 2018! “The World is Our Emergency Room!” Bearing witness to human suffering and raising awareness for neglected crises around the world is a core responsibility of MSF. After hosting a successful event in 2017, MSF will host its second film festival – FILMS WITHOUT BORDERS 2018 – again in Seoul, in November 2018. At FILMS WITHOUT BORDERS 2018, MSF will screen three critically acclaimed documentary films under the topics of Hospital attacks, TB, and Migrants, and the other three popular films from the 2017 event. There will also be various field talks with MSF field works and experts that always draw people’s attention. The event will span three days, bringing in an anticipated audience of over 1,200 people. MSF Korea is seeking corporate and community leaders who raise its brand image and spread the value of humanitarian medical activities through a partnership with this special public event. Funds generated by the film festival will go directly towards MSF’s medical humanitarian aid activities in over 70 countries worldwide, and sponsors/partners will not only make a direct impact on MSF’s patients, but also help raise awareness amongst the Korean community for humanitarian engagement. [Event Info] Title: FILMS WITHOUT BORDERS 2018 Slogan: The world is our emergency room. Date: November, 2018 (TBC) Programs: 6 documentaries and field talks [Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)] Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization, founded in 1971. In over 70 countries around the world, MSF provides urgent medical humanitarian assistance for people in need caught in conflict zones, epidemics, natural disasters, or exclusion from health care. Over 30,000 MSF aid workers work in the extremely difficult and neglected places around the world. MSF aid workers are professionals in various fields such as doctors, nurses, logisticians, administrators, and mental health specialists. Their actions are based on medical ethics, and they deliver medical aid to the people who need it most, regardless of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation. The reason why MSF can operates independently in an urgent situation is that MSF limits the rate of public funding. 95% of MSF’s funding comes from individual donors and private corporations. MSF was awarded the Seoul Peace Prize in 1996 and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999, in recognition of the organization’s humanitarian work.
