The 12th Annual USF Human Rights Film Festival

Change the World from the Big Screen

What’s a school devoted to social justice without a three day film festival dedicated to human rights?

USF will host its 12th Annual Human Rights Film Festival the first weekend of April, in effort to promote awareness and dialogue about global human rights abuses occurring around the world and in our own backyard.

The films selected will address issues like political repression, torture, killings, immigration, environmental destruction, LGBT rights, poverty, and HIV, amongst others.

The festival will open with film shorts produced by USF students, though their names have not yet been released.

Mariana Camacho, a junior media studies major, is one of the volunteer coordinators for the festival. She has spent the past few weeks recruiting volunteers, organizing shifts, and generating outside interest throughout the city to have people outside the USF community attend the festival.

“The festival takes a lot of organization, especially for faculty and people who work year round organizing,” Camacho said.

“They have to select movies and contact the film makers and producers to ask for permission to screen the movies; raise funds to actually pay for the movies; and [oversee] the whole set up of the festival. It is definitely a year round task.”

In addition to a full film schedule, there will be follow-up discussions with filmmakers, audience members, and visiting Bay Area human rights organizations to further promote awareness and education of human rights.

“I think everyone should attend,” said Camacho, adding, “this school, and the city in general, has such a strong conviction regarding social justice — what better way to get informed than watching quality films for free?”

The event is hosted by Cine Acción at USF, and is free and open to the public.

The festival will take place Thursday April 3 to Saturday April 5 in the USF Presentation Theater, located on 2350 Turk Blvd.
