Jayu is a registered not-for-profit organization that provides a platform to engage patrons in a global human rights discussion through the arts. We strive to be the catalyst for change and envision a world of globally minded and informed individuals who support human rights.
THE HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL
Our fourth annual Human Rights Film Festival will take place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from December 10-13 during International Human Rights Month. Films and guests will be confirmed towards the end of the year.
MORE THAN JUST A FILM FESTIVAL
Jayu is growing bigger than the film festival itself and we continue to offer new and exciting programs including: Jayu Speaks and the #StreeetPhotographyProject. We engage students and members in communities around Ontario by programming high quality films and bringing in engaging guests to showcase human rights abuses that evoke discussion. Our mission has taken us to Guelph, Hamilton, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and recently beyond Canada at Boise State University in Idaho.
Jayu is entirely volunteer based meaning nobody earns an income. Our team is made up of a dedicated volunteer staff and Board of Directors.
