POV filmmakers will be in New York City this month for one of my personal favorite festivals of the year! Three POV films will have their NYC premieres at the 2011 Human Rights Watch Film Festival (June 16-30 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center).
Better This World premieres in NYC at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival and filmmakers Kelly Duane de la Vega & Katie Galloway and film subject Bradley Crowder will be on hand for post-screening discussions. Don’t miss this award-winning doc that goes to the heart of the war on terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America.
