        Every year, for over a decade, we’ve presented a selection of powerful films with distinctive human rights themes. The power of film cannot be underestimated to challenge the viewer and promote calls to action. Rather than wallow in despair, the films in this program will put a human face on threats to individual freedom and dignity, and celebrate the ability of the human spirit and intellect to prevail.

  This will be a debate between three two person panels from three third parties (the Libertarians, the Green Party, and the Pirate Party). The key purpose of this event is to provide an informational platform for the voices of third parties who are often drowned out by the majoritarian Democrat/Republican ideologies. By providing an opportunity to showcase third party schools of thought, we make the first steps towards breaking the illusion of choice provided by a two party system.
