14th Annual Human Rights watch Toronto film Festival

Please join us for the 14th annual Toronto Human Rights Watch Film Festival, taking place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from March 29 to April 6, 2017.

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.
