Human Rights Watch Film Festival Opening Night: Reception, Summer Qamp Film Screening + Q&A

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - February 2 @ 9:00 pm

Friday, February 2
6:00–9:00 p.m.

 

Join MOPA@SDMA and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival Opening Night for an in-person-only screening and opening night reception and celebration of queer joy with the life-affirming film, Summer Qamp, followed by a live-panel discussion with the film team and local LGBTQ+ rights advocates.

Summer Qamp follows a group of queer youth as they attend a camp like no other: a judgment-free zone where they explore their authentic selves while building community, finding joy, and making memories that will last a lifetime. Uplifting, funny and moving, this film invites audiences into the innocence and joy of a summer away with friends, while never losing sight of the bravery of these young protagonists.

 

The Human Rights Watch Film Festival features critically acclaimed films on topics including the rights of LGBTQ+ teens, family separation, refugee rights, disability rights, and the right to a free independent press in Native American tribes. Each in-person screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with filmmakers and human rights leaders.

 

6:00 p.m. Opening Night Reception
