Human Rights Arts & Film Festival

Human Rights Arts & Film Festival

3 May to 17 May 2018

Melbourne (Australia)

Presenting the best films and artwork from around the world, Melbourne’s annual Human Rights Arts & Film Festival (HRAFF) will challenge, touch and inspire audiences from all walks of life. HRAFF is a Melbourne based not-for-profit organisation devoted to the exploration of human rights issues through an annual film and arts festival and an on-going schools and community program. HRAFF selects its arts and film to engage and inform people on human rights issues. The festival’s innovative and entertaining program resonates with audiences, encouraging them to talk about their experience. For a fortnight in Melbourne, and three weeks across the country, HRAFF exhibits a selection of contemporary cinema, music and fine art. In its sixth year, HRAFF continues to provide a shared site whereby artists, human rights organisations and the Australian public are united by their desire to contribute to social change.
