Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2019

13 March 2019 to 22 March 2019

Multiple Locations in London

On 13-22 March 2019, Human Rights Watch will host their annual Film Festival in London. The festival will include 15 remarkable films offering fresh perspectives and critical insights on human rights concerns impacting people around the world. 

Among the movies selected is Facing the Dragon, the story of two intrepid Afghan women – a parliamentarian and journalist – who risk the safety of their families to bring progress to their country. Facing the Dragon will be screened on the 16th & 17th of March in London.

The HRW Film Festival currently screens in over 20 cities around the world throughout the year. The festival's programming committee operates out of the New York office to screen more than 500 films each year. Through a rigorous vetting process, that includes review by Human Rights Watch’s programmatic staff, the festival chooses approximately 40 films each year to participate in our various festivals. It is then up to the particular city and its programming committee to choose films from this final selection for their specific festival.
