The second annual ACT Human Rights Film Festival opens for a week of unforgettable international cinema on Friday, April 14, 2017, at the Colorado State University Lory Student Center Theatre. Join with us and awaken to your world, connect across cultures, and transform lives near and far.
This year’s films are among the most recent to have screened at human rights film festivals around the world. Topics explore race in America, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, forgiveness and war, imprisonment, music, migration, and free press and hail from countries on nearly every continent: Cuba, Mali, India, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala, South Korea, Iran, Spain, and the U.S. Each critically-acclaimed film will feature a post-screening discussion with film directors, subjects, and special guests.
Films will screen at the Lory Student Center Theatre (4/14-16, & 20, 21) and the Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre (4/17-19). All film titles will be listed individually at lctix.com and will go on sale March 16. For more information about the festival, visit www.actfilmfest.org.
The ACT Human Rights Film Festival is produced by the Department of Communication Studies in the College of Liberal Arts at Colorado State University. This project was made possible, in part, through a grant from the Lilla B. Morgan Memorial Endowment, which works to enhance the cultural development and atmosphere for the arts at Colorado State University.
