This international film festival aims to showcase the stories of activists and survivors from across the globe. Currently in its 14th year, it brings together documentary and fiction films with the intention of galvanising those who watch them to join those taking action against injustices many face every day.
This year's London arm of the festival runs from March 17 to 26 and will screen 28 films from 20 countries.
