The Museum of Photographic Arts is hosting a virtual film festival and live Q&A discussions with award-winning filmmakers and human rights advocates to shed light on social issues impacting the global community.
The 11th annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival will feature critically acclaimed films on topics including LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, equal access to childcare for working-class parents, freedom of speech, and systemic racism. The festival will kick off with the award-winning film Through the Night, which won the Special Jury Prize at the DOC NYC Film Festival and was nominated for an IDA Documentary Award.
The film turns a much-needed spotlight on the unsung heroes helping to raise the country’s children: In a New York suburb, Dee’s Tots Daycare becomes a 24-hour lifeline for an entire community. Each film screening will be followed by a live Q&A to discuss the social issues depicted.
