June 10-28: Human Rights Film Festival at Lincoln Center

"Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. 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. Each year, the festival's programming committee screens more than 500 films and videos to create a program that represents a range of countries and issues."

The Human Rights Watch Film Festival returns to New York and The Film Society of Lincoln Center for its 21st edition with 30 Films from 25 Countries—including 28 New York Premieres.
