We believe in the power of film to educate about human rights violations and encourage citizens to take action. We know that committed citizens can help to stop these abuses. Our goals are to promote awareness and discussion of global human rights issues and explore challenges to human rights in specific locations. Additionally, this Festival seeks to strengthen USF's links with Bay Area human rights organizations, which we invite to participate in educating our audiences.
This 11th anniversary festival will showcase 11 selected films that address human rights abuses. For the fifth year, the festival will open with a selection of shorts produced by University of San Francisco (USF) students.
This film festival is FREE and open to the public. The community is encouraged to attend. For details on each film, and the specific schedule of the three-day event, please visit: http://www.usfca.edu/artsci/hrff/
