JAYU's 8th annual Human Rights Film Festival will take place at the prestigious Ted Rogers Hot Docs Cinema in downtown Toronto in December 2019 during International Human Rights day.

The Human Rights Film Festival aims to share human rights stories through the arts and engaging dialogue.

Please note that we also run year round screenings that we might contact you earlier for instead of the festival.

Please email john@jayu.ca if you would like to be considered exclusively for the festival screenings.

Submissions that have premiered over TWO years ago prior to the festival WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

All are screenings are open captioned. Providing a SRT file or letting us create a SRT file to add to the film will be mandatory for consideration to the festival.
