Human Rights Watch Film Festival Celebrates A Decade In San Diego
The Human Rights Watch Film Festival returns to San Diego this weekend for its 10 year anniversary.
This year, the festival will showcase five films that highlight "changemakers" or individuals who are working to stand up for human rights. The festival will open with the award-winning film "Gay Chorus Deep South," which won the Tribeca Audience Award Documentary in 2019.
Each film screening will be followed by an audience question-and-answer session to discuss the social issues depicted. Other featured films tackle LGBTQ rights, immigration, racial injustice and journalistic integrity.
The festival runs Jan. 30 through Feb. 2 at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in Balboa Park.
Kevin Linde, manager of adult and digital engagement at MOPA, joined Midday Edition with a preview of this year's festival.
