The Human Rights Arts & Film Festival returns for its ninth year, showcasing inspiring human stories from around the world.

From 5 May to 8 June, the festival will present a diverse program of documentaries and narrative films, captivating art, rhythmic cultural music and engaging forums to immerse yourself in and expand your world-view.

Touring nationally across

Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Alice Springs and Darwin

from 5 May to 8 June 2016.

From asylum seekers and Indigenous Australians to Malian musicians and Maya Angelou, the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival (HRAFF) film program this year brings together the best human rights films from the international festival circuit.


Human Rights film festival hireThe program includes the premiere of the much-awaited Australian documentary Chasing Asylums and three documentaries straight from Sundance 2016 (Hooligan Sparrow, The Bad Kids and Maya Angelou and Still I Rise). The film lineup also includes They Will Have to Kill Us First: Malian Music in Exile, which features exciting new Malian band Songhoy Blues
who recently completed their Australian tour in March.

The arts program this year thematically complements the film program, featuring works by high-profile Australian artist Alex Seton and HRAFF’s first-ever collaboration with Footscray Community Arts Centre. Both events explore the refugee and asylum seeker experience on Australian soil.
