16TH ANNUAL HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL
Friday, October 14 at 8 PM & Saturday, October 15 at 5 pm and 7 pm
Now in its 16th year, the EPFC Human Rights Film Festival seeks to create avenues for dialogue and action using films as a catalyst for change. There will be workshops, films and discussions running for 2 days during the festival. FREE EVENT! Come one. Come all!
We will live in a world filled with conflict, oppression and tyranny – however it is the power of people, and love, and dialogue that can and will lead to positive change!
Join for our 16th year as we present a weekend of films, conversations and kinship to examine the world we live in and what we can do to make it better, with peace and justice for all.

- Just in time for election season, America’s favorite political provocateur, Michael Moore, is back with his new film, WHERE TO INVADE NEXT. This film is an expansive, hilarious, and subversive comedy in which Moore confronts the most pressing issues facing America today and finds solutions in the most unlikely places. The creator of FAHRENHEIT 9/11 and BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE has returned with an epic movie that’s unlike anything he has done before—an eye-opening call to arms to capture the American Dream and restore it in, of all places, America.
