Twenty thought-provoking important features and another 20 short films! With the theme, ‘Walang Pipikit 360’ (No One Blinks An Eye), the festival encourages continued creative resistance against threats to life, livelihood, and lifestyle by presenting a plethora of events – film screenings, exhibits, forums, and performances, to engage the public in meaningful discourse on the human rights and democracy issues our country faces today.
Despite the current context of the pandemic and the worsening human rights situation in the Philippines, the festival perseveres to pursue its mission by holding its 8th edition online this September 19-27, 2020.
