Watch captivating films exploring various issues of human rights this May.
With the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival upon us, you have the opportunity to explore the issues faced by those seeking asylum, global coal mines and capitalism threatening traditional ways of life as well as the true cost of fast fashion.
The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival (HRAFF) is a not-for-profit organisation devoted to the exploration of human rights issues through an annual film and arts festival.
HRAFF selects its films from around the world to engage and inform people as well as to challenge, touch and inspire audiences from all walks of life. This year there are 33 feature films and 25 short films touching many broad elements of human rights.
“This year we have had the choice of so many excellent films. The Opening Night film, the Australian premiere of Chasing Asylum, is set to be one of the most important Australian documentaries of 2016," said Malcolm Blaylock, Program Director of HRAFF.
For a month from 5 May to 8 June, HRAFF are touring nationally, exhibiting a selection of contemporary cinema, music and fine art. In its ninth year, HRAFF continues to provide a place where artists, human rights organisations and the Australian public are united by their desire to contribute to social change.
Bank Australia is proud to support the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival for the fourth year in a row. This year we’re proudly presenting the Australian Shorts and La Buena Vida.
"We are excited to partner with Bank Australia as our Major National Partner for the 9th year of the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival. We feel proud to be partnering with a customer owned bank that is pro-active about making a positive impact on social, economic and environmental issues that are important to their stakeholders,” said Malcolm Blaylock, Program Director of HRAFF.
