Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2023

Monday, June 5 - Thursday, June 8, 2023

Through the Human Rights Watch Film Festival we bear witness to human rights violations and create a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference. The film festival brings human rights abuses to life through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to engage and demand justice for all.
The Human Rights Watch Film Festival, now in its 34th year, will  be back with a full program of in-person screenings at IFC Center, presenting 5 groundbreaking new films from June 5 to June 8, with in-depth discussions with filmmakers, film participants, activists and Human Rights Watch researchers.
