The festival has been running since 2008. This year it begins with arts and film events over eleven days in Melbourne. Over the next three weeks it then travels to other major cities around Australia including Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Alice Springs, Byron Bay, Perth and Adelaide. The program is intended to raise awareness about international and local human rights issues, such as child labour, homelessness and the plight of refugees.

Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, Brisbane:
The Brisbane Program includes four films and will be held Tuesday, June 5 - Saturday, June 8, 2012 @ Tribal Theatre, George St, City:
Australian Shorts, Tuesday, June 5, 7pm. A moving collection of 8 short films.
Buffalo Girls, Wednesday, June 6, 7pm. Thai documentary following the lives of two eight year old girls over a three year period- apparently some of the 30 000 involved in highly controversial Child-Boxing Tournaments.
Our School, Thursday, June 7, 7pm. Documentary about the Romanian Government attempt to integrate Romas Gypsies in to the education system.
International Shorts, Friday, June 8, 7pm. From Cuba to Norway, these eight short films provide a unique insight into life on our planet.

These films are powerful and will no doubt spark some debate, so why not expand your horizons, learn about marginalised communities and support human rights and the arts all in the one venue.
