SF Human Rights Film Festival

Learn More About Important Struggles Throughout the World

NOTE: On December 6, San Francisco (and a few surrounding counties) will once again be on a stay-at-home order. This will last indefinitely. Click here for more information.

The SF Human Rights Film Festival offers powerful works about the issue of human rights abuses throughout the world. 2020 marks the 17th anniversary of this important festival, which takes place March 26, 27, & 28 at the USF Presentation Theater.

Over the course of the three-day event, you will see pieces on a variety of human rights issues, including political repression, torture, and disappearances. Some of the other issues highlighted at the festival include environmental destruction, the effects of war on children, poverty, and HIV.

SF Human Rights

The goal of this festival is to educate the broader public about these issues and provide a basis to begin discussions for change. It's also a way for the University of San Francisco to unite with Bay Area human rights organizations and help support their causes.

In addition to the international films shown at the festival, USF students and alumni will also have the chance to showcase their own works.

These thought-provoking films will leave you with many questions, including how you might be able to help.

The entire SF Human Rights Film Festival is free and open to the general public.
