As part of their new partnership with Hot Docs, Human Rights Watch celebrated International Human Rights Day on Tuesday, by announcing its seventeenth international film festival, which will run from January 30 to February 4, 2020, in Toronto, according to Human Rights Watch. Five free films will be shown, in addition to three special selections for daytime school screenings, with a focus on the resistance against the racism and xenophobia plaguing the highest government offices around the globe. All showings will be followed up by in-depth panels with filmmakers, film subjects, Human Rights Watch researchers, and other special guests.

Here, you will find the facts of life aestheticized into the plot points of your next favorite dramatic narrative.
