TIFF says
Bravely bearing witness to human rights violations worldwide, the documentary and fiction features at the annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival tell extraordinary stories of struggle, survival, and hope.

“We no longer live in a world where we can plead ignorance, and for those seeking the truth, our festival offers empowering and personal glimpses into the world of survivors whose commitment to the fight inspires us to care, and reminds us that now is the time to act."—Helga Stephenson
