The North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival welcomes Falcon Gott as the new Native American Programming Director.
The Human Family joins a global call for the release of Belarusian cultural activist and human rights defender Tatsiana Hatsura-Yavorska, who was arrested in Minsk on the 5th of April, along with several other human rights defenders.
The Human Family presents Our Right to Gaze: Black Film Identities, a collection of six shorts where filmmakers gaze at themselves and their world, attempting to make sense of what they see reflected back.
From gripping drama to heart-warming comedy, Our Right to Gaze: Black Film Identities features timely stories from Black artists that take us outside of the ordinary.
Our Right to Gaze will be available on-demand from Sunday, February 14 to Sunday, February 28. Watch the 82-minute collection of films at your leisure from the comfort of your home.
Early bird Submissions for NDHRFF5 opened December 1, 2020. Filmmakers will want to be a part of this special five-year anniversary for the festival. Pandemic permitting, the festival will take place at the historic Fargo Theatre in Fargo, North Dakota, November 3-6, 2021.
Submissions are accepted exclusively through FilmFreeway.
