Our 2021 edition runs 25-28 November in Coventry and Birmingham. Please join us for our 7th festival!

After an intense and intimate online festival last year, we’re back in the room with a selection of hard-hitting and thought-provoking social justice films, as well as discussions. We have 11 important films from around the world, and post-screening events with the directors, producers, ‘stars’, experts and activists.

Follow a tight-knit community of young women in Karachi who are changing the face of their city; meet two fierce abolitionists whose upbringing and experiences shape their activism and views on Black liberation in Chicago. We’ll witness the complex collision between human and nature and the consequences of our actions, seen from both the human and animal perspective; explore one director’s relationship to her aunt who worked for dictator Pinochet and move to Guatemala to follow a courageous journalist who infiltrated the government. We’ll see a moving portrait of a queer Kenyan man torn between balancing duty to his family with his dreams for his future and uncover a treasure trove of archive footage that illuminates Ailey’s choreography and Black American life in the early 20th century. We cast a spotlight on the grassroots movement against the Assad regime in Syria and the threatening struggles of daily life under occupation in Palestine and, in Britain, we’ll witness the struggle for justice by the families of people who have died in British police custody. The festival closes with an inspiring documentary about the peaceful uprising of the Belarusian nation against injustice and the brutal suppression of their democracy movements. Enjoy!
