5th Annual Human Rights Film Festival
Arizona State University’s Human Rights Film Festival (HRFF) explores human rights issues though film, as well as to honor filmmakers who share a vision of a more just world through awareness and action. During its five-year history, the HRFF has highlighted a diversity of human rights themes, both domestic and international, from torture and war, to immigrant rights, to gender and racial discrimination, to rights of access to basic services, to indigenous rights and the right to a healthy and sustainable ecology.
The HRFF seeks to increase awareness about the full range of human rights challenges, so that students and community members are able to think critically and feel empowered to engage with social justice. Each film is accompanied by an expert panel -- consisting of filmmakers, activists, scholars, and/or practitioners -- who guide the audience in exploring the topics and clarifying promising actions in defense of human rights.
Free and open to the public.
