Hello, this is Pip. Geneva’s annual film and human rights festival will return to the city next month with a packed programme of screenings, interviews and debates covering some of the most pressing global issues of our time, from conflict and displacement to climate change.

We're taking a closer look at this year’s programme, which was unveiled yesterday.

We’re also hearing about the cultural and historical sites under attack in Ukraine, and covering the latest warnings from the UN that rising seas threaten to force billions of people out of their homes.
