The 11th annual Bellingham Human Rights Film Festival runs from Feb. 17-26. Films will be shown at Fairhaven College Auditorium, Western Washington University, the Pickford Theater, and local high schools.
The aim of the festival is to ” supports independent filmmakers, fosters dialogue, and promotes action. For eleven years, volunteer committee members have selected scores of insightful and moving films they hope will encourage the community to explore and engage with critical issues. Films are followed by facilitated discussion, some led by the filmmakers themselves.”
Tonights opening film is “Budrus” a story about Ayed Morrar and his young daughter who organize Palestinians and Israelis, in an inspiring nonviolent movement to save their village from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier. The venue is the Pickford Cinema at 7 and 9 pm. A reception will take place between shows @ Allied Arts 1418 Cornwall Ave.
