2nd University of Ottawa Human Rights Film Festival
October 2, 2014 until October 5, 2014

A collaboration between the Human Rights Research and Education Centre of the University of Ottawa and the Canadian Film Institute, the 2nd University of Ottawa Human Rights Film Festival features six international documentaries and films highlighting compelling human rights issues around mental health and women’s rights. The program brings different realities to life through the experiences of individuals from six continents, affected by Williams Syndrome, depression, and trauma caused by war crimes, violence against women, political conflict and forced displacement. The screenings are followed by opportunities for discussion. The Festival also includes a seminar on the use of film for human rights advocacy, and screenings at local high schools.
