Watch Docs International Film Festival: Human Rights in Film
Friday Dec 7 - Thursday Dec 13
Encircling the topic of human rights, Watch Docs (a play on the word "watchdogs," with reference to watchdog organizations and NGOs) is touted as one of the oldest and largest human rights film festivals in the world, annually drawing thousands of viewers on a national (and international) level. The featured documentaries tell stories of not only singular acts of heroism but also unearth massive actions against human rights. All film screenings are accompanied by numerous meetings and workshops; in addition, every film block will be summarised by a series of questions and a dose of discussion.
