About the Festival
The Northeast Human Rights Film Festival (NEHRFF) is a three-day forum for screening and discussion of compelling films and digital media projects that address contemporary human rights issues. In addition to film screenings, filmmakers will have the opportunity to engage with other filmmakers, scholars, and practitioners for skills training, advocacy, and impact strategy development. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue around critical issues related to human rights film.
Building on the 20-year legacy of human rights education at UConn and the Human Rights Film and Digital Media Initiative, NEHRFF is a collaboration between UConn’s Gladstein Family Human Rights Institute, Dodd Human Rights Impact, and the department of Digital Media & Design.
The Northeast Human Rights Film Festival is presented by the School of Fine Arts and the Gladstein Family Human Rights Institute, with generous philanthropic support from NICABM (National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine).
