North Korean Human Rights Film Festival
The current human rights situation in North Korea is dire. Millions suffer from hunger eachday while millions more have died from starvation. North Koreans live with very few freedoms and rights. Many have no choice but to escape their country, take on the life of a defector and leave everything behind. Even at that point, however, the possibility of freedom is not guaranteed.
In response, North Korean Human Rights Film Festival is Toronto’s first, to tell the story of the people of North Korea through film. As members of New City participate in hosting this impactful event, we hope to support the efforts tohold this festival to raise awareness, create discussion and bring about change in hopes of contributing to a better situation for North Korea and its people.
Dates: Friday, July 6th – Sunday, July 8th
Location: Innis Town Hall, Toronto
