The University of San Francisco (USF) presents the 2014 Human Rights Film Festival,
an annual event highlighting films that promote awareness and
conversation surrounding human rights issues at home and around the
world. The festival will consist of three days of screenings--from
Thursday, April 3 to Saturday, April 5. Following each film, there will
be a question and answer segment, led by an expert on the topic, to
engage audience members in a critical discussion of the issues, and to
consider ways these issues could be combatted.
The festival will begin with a choice number of USF student films and
USF alumni-produced shorts, followed by professional films. All films
shown focus on human rights issues. The topics addressed in this year’s
films range from immigration to the effects of war. The festival’s
closing film is The Act of Killing, a 2014 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
When: Thursday, April 3 to Saturday, April 5, with films being
screened throughout each day. For specific dates and times, please visit
Where: USF’s Presentation Theater, located at 2350 Turk Blvd. (between Masonic Ave. and Tamalapais Terrace) in San Francisco.
