Flashpoint Human Rights Film Festival 2010


Mumbai : December 8 – 10, 2010 @ Alliance Francaise
New Delhi : January 20 – 22, 2011 @ Alliance Francaise

FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival brings together eight extraordinary films from around the world that deal with human rights issues at macro as well as micro level; from global concerns to indigenous issues. These films urge us to reflect, react, revolutionalize and act as a ‘flashpoint’ to usher in change.

The four day festival to be held in Mumbai between December 8-10, 2010 and in New Delhi between January 20-22, 2011. The Mumbai edition would include special focused thematic screenings and discussions on Human Rights Day (December 10th).

The eight documentaries to be screened at FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival highlights the extraordinary work done by eight human rights defenders across the world, and their brave fight against injustice and oppression. These films show what great dangers and threats these activists have to face to do their work. In many of the countries freedom of speech, the right to a fair trial and the right to life are violated.
