Toronto’s 14th annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival

TIFF and Human Rights Watch will co-host Toronto’s 14th annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival from March 29 to April 6 at TIFF Bell Lightbox, showcasing cinematic works at the forefront of the human rights movement in Afghanistan, Canada, China, Egypt, France, the United States, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Syria, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

The festival kicks off with a screening of A Syrian Love Story, a documentary that dives into the refugee experience through the telling of a love story between a Palestinian “freedom fighter” and a Syrian “revolutionary” who met as political prisoners.

It closes with Nick de Pencier’s Black Code, which follows cyber stewards who travel the world to expose unprecedented levels of global digital espionage.

Additional highlights include the Toronto premiere of Tickling Giants, which follows a popular television show host who has been dubbed “The Egyptian Jon Stewart,” and Alanis Obomsawin’s We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice, an epic documentary chronicle of a legal battle waged against the injustices inflicted on Indigenous children in Canada.
