Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival takes place Sept. 24-26.

September 24, 2015

The 13th annual Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival (SUHRFF) is part of the 2015 Syracuse Symposium: Networks, presented by the SU Humanities Center.

Roger Hallas, an associate professor of English at Syracuse University, co-directs the film festival along with television, radio, and film associate professor Tula Goenka.

Vivian May, director of the Humanities Center and associate professor of women’s and gender studies, says, “This year’s lineup is particularly strong, using critically acclaimed independent films to explore issues of social justice around the world. My hope is that this festival—and Syracuse SymposiumTM, in general—will stimulate a sustained dialogue about these issues and ways they may be addressed.”
