Oxford Human Rights Festival

Raising awareness of Human Rights through the Arts.

In 2016 the Oxford Human Rights Film Festival will be celebrating its 14th year. Founded in 2003, the festival is an initiative of post graduate students on the Oxford Brookes MA course in Development and Emergency Practice.

In attracting diverse audiences to each of our events, the aim of the festival is to raise awareness about a range of human rights concerns among students and the wider Oxford community.

The festival involves a wide variety of events including film, music, performance and art.
