Respect Belfast Human Rights Film Festival will take place between the 4th and 7th of October, 2019. The festival will screen a range of films/documentaries that promote a wider understanding of Human Rights subjects, such as, Immigration, Asylum, Women’s Rights, War & Conflict, Mental Health, LGBT Rights, Workers Rights, Environmental Concerns, Healthcare, Austerity & Disability Issues.
As part of our programme, we also aim to deliver a series of films, events and panel discussions exploring the wider cultural, human and socio-political implications of conflict and the countless ways these have been presented through film, both historically and in contemporary cinema.
This will combine a range of short fiction and documentary films as part of our ‘short film’ competition with a wider range of classic and contemporary feature-length films that offer a more discursive look at many of the human rights issues at hand.
