Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2020

January 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - February 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2020

The Museum of Photographic Arts hosts the 2020 San Diego Human Rights Watch Film Festival from January 30 to February 1. In the presentation of these five powerful films and discussions, we aim to shine a spotlight on individuals standing up, pushing back and bravely defending the human rights of all people. Attendees bear witness human rights violations at screenings in direct storytelling, which are complemented with a local or broader narrative at post-screening forums and Q&As.

Change Starts Here.

About Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. We work tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep rooted change and fight to bring greater justice and security to people around the world. Through our 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 to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people.
