Jayu’s 3rd Annual Human Rights Film Festival

Jayu’s Human Rights Film Festival exists to provide a platform for those connected to human rights issues to have a voice and share their stories. Whether it’s an individual who has suffered human rights abuses or an artist that is connected to the issue, we want to become the leading interlocutor between the issue and the audience. We are doing this to redefine the dialogue about human rights with a focus on the people’s voices, through art.

The 2014 Human Rights Film Festival will touch on themes centred around persecutionwomen & children and change.
