The 8th annual International Film Festival at USF takes place on February 18, 19, and 20 and will include films focusing on Ecuador, Haiti,  South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, and the U.S., as well as other countries and regions in a couple of documentaries that illustrate the scope of global poverty and the crimes against humanity that prompted the formation of the International Criminal Court.

For the second year, the festival offers a selection of shorts produced by USF students. In addition to the screenings, we are delighted to present a musical performance by Kalbass Kreyol, A Bay Area’s Haitian Band

Admission to each of the films and the concert is free and open to the general public. As with past editions, our goals are to promote awareness and discussion of global human rights issues and explore challenges to human rights in specific locations.
