This year’s line-up reflects the festival’s ethos of championing diversity of content and perspective. In their programme, they will be highlighting powerful and uplifting stories of those demanding justice, equality, and safety for themselves, their communities, and future generations. With a collection of films that celebrate the power of activism through mass collective movements, there’s plenty to get inspired by.
