Celebrating films - both fact and fiction - with a distinctive Human Rights theme, the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival has been running since 1994. This year's programme features a strong documentary line-up, including Sundance winners Enemies Of Happiness and Hot House. Among the stand-out fiction films on display are Oscar-winner The Lives Of Others and fellow Oscar nominee Days Of Glory.
The festival ran at venues across London, Toronto and San Francisco earlier in the year. The festival is currently running in Chicago, until May 17 and the New York line-up - running from June 14 to 28 - has been announced.
