What does it mean to give a sh*t? It means you’re fired up. It means you’re angry. But most importantly, it means you care. To give a sh*t means you won’t stand by while human rights abuses continue locally and around the globe. You want to learn more. You want to do something.
You can do something. JAYU's HRFF+ is a 10 day festival of social justice focused art, film, workshops, and more. We're looking for films that inspire people to create a better future for everyone long after they leave the theatre (Physical or virtual).
JAYU's 11th annual Human Rights Film Festival will take place in Toronto, Canada from December 1st-10th during International Human Rights day.
Please note that we also run year round screenings that we might contact you earlier for instead of the festival.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be considered exclusively for the festival screenings.
Everyone who submits does so under the understanding that:
1. They are expected to provide English captions or allow JAYU Festival Inc to add English captions to your film.
2. That in light of the COVID19 pandemic, you will be open to either a virtual or in-person festival.
Submissions that have premiered over TWO years ago prior to the festival WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
All are screenings will be presented with open captions.
