The Justice Film Festival inspires justice seekers by presenting films of unexpected courage and redemption that are diverse in their issues and geography. After stops in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Chicago the fifth annual Justice Film Festival will return to the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture October 6-8, 2017 in New York City. As always, this year's event will include feature films, documentaries, and shorts from both well-known and emerging filmmakers that shine a light on justice.
Throughout the weekend attendees will have the opportunity to screen new films and interact with filmmakers, producers, non-profit leaders, social entrepreneurs and distributors. All selected films will be invited to attend the event in New York and participate in live talk-backs with the audience after screening their movie. (Travel & accommodations are not included).
