Amnesty International Hong Kong has been organizing the Human Rights Documentary Film Festival since 2011. The Festival is the first-ever film festival featuring human rights documentaries in Hong Kong. We hope to encourage the audience to discuss and reflect on different human rights issues through watching documentaries.
Film festival focusing on human rights must be boring? Not at all! The Human Rights Documentary Film Festival covers a wide range of human rights issues, while the selected documentaries include award-winning films in the Oscars and Berlin Film Festival and independent films from different countries. The Human Rights Documentary Festival is very popular. Every year, the screenings are sold out soon after the commencement of ticket sale.
We hope that people with different needs can enjoy our film. Therefore, each year, selected films are shown in school screenings and free community screenings. The Festival is also expanding the accessibility services for people with disabilities. This year, over 95% of the film screenings are with accessible captions, while audio description is available for 30% of the film screenings and over 25% of the film screenings will attach a post-screening discussion session which provides sign interpretation.
This year, the Human Rights Film Club is established so as to gather all human rights film supporters! As a member, you will enjoy exclusive benefits such as reserving best spots and joining member activities. Spots are limited! Join us now at http://hrfilm.amnesty.org.hk/
