The Human Rights Watch Film Festival will be presented from June 11 to 21, 2015 with 16 films from across the globe that celebrate the power of individuals and communities to effect change. Now in its 26th edition, the festival is co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC Center.
This year’s film festival is organized around three themes: Art Versus Oppression, Changemakers, and Justice and Peace. The festival also features a series of special programs, including a discussion around the ethics of image-making in documenting human rights abuses, a master class on international crisis reporting and digital storytelling, and a multimedia project on the women activists of the Arab Spring.
