Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2017

Series Site

In an era of global advances by far-right forces into the political mainstream, assaults on the free press, and the rise of citizen journalism, the 28th New York Human Rights Watch Film Festival will present 20 topical and provocative feature documentaries and panel discussions that showcase courageous resilience in challenging times, and celebrate the ongoing fight for justice, progress, and transparency. We hope that these films can serve as an inspiration and motivation for our audience, from seasoned activists to those searching for a role in various local and global movements.
