Human Rights Film Festival


Wednesday 18th – Friday 27th March 2015


London cinemas

Head to the cinemas around London for a festival celebrating films that make a difference. The Human Rights Film Festival, organised by the Human Rights Watch Group, returns to London for more than a week of films that hope to make a difference. Check out the films on view and see the best human rights themed films from all around the world.

Tour the world
At the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival you can view documentaries and animated and feature films from countries all across the globe. The heroic stories are sure to inspire you to act and make a difference.

Human rights films in London
Presented at cinemas throughout London including Curzon Soho and Mayfair, the ICA, and Ritzy Cinema, the Human Rights Film Festival aims to bring the issues that people are struggling with all over the world right to the heart of the capital. Through the eyes of the filmmakers, you can explore the struggles of the less fortunate and see their inspiring courage.

Make a difference
The films in the Human Rights Film Festival just might inspire you to make a difference or see things from another point of view. The films aim to put a human face on threats to freedom, and also to celebrate the power of the human spirit. Simply by viewing the films you’re bringing attention to the subjects behind them.

Films included
Some of the films featured last year included the UK premieres of films such as Alias Ruby Blade: A Story of Love and Revolution, In the Shadow of the Sun and Fatal Assistance. Other films included Marc Wiese's highly anticipated Camp 14 - Total Control Zone, an animated documentary detailing the life of a man born in a North Korean prison camp and the violence he witnessed there. There was also the chance to see Salma, a film about a young Muslim girl in India, forced into seclusion at puberty, forbidden to study and forced into marriage.

The full programme for the 2015 Human Rights Film Festival has yet to be announced.

The Human Rights Film Festival runs from Wednesday 17th – Friday 27th March 2015. Venues include the Ritzy Cinema, the ICA and Curzon Soho and Curzon Mayfair. Times and admission prices vary. For more information and a full schedule, click on the link below.
