The festival will feature six documentaries focusing on five human rights themes: peace and freedom, migrant workers, freedom of speech, civil society, Israeli-Palestinian conflict, democracy, and internet surveillance.

Featured films include “Freedom for the Wolf,” which showcases democratic movements around the world, with a nod to the 2014 Occupy Central movement in Hong Kong.

According to festival organisers, over 3,000 people attend the festival every year.

There will be a free public screening of “Free Speech Free Fear,” which features an interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, on October 13 at 8pm outside SKH Kei Wing Primary School in Mong Kok.

The event is set to take place at the Broadway Cinematheque in Prosperous Garden, 3 Public Square Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon – next to MTR Yau Ma Tei Station, Exit C.
