The 4th Annual Morehouse College Human Rights Film Festival Announces Crowdfunding Campaign to Expand Opportunities for Filmmakers


The 4th Annual Morehouse College Human Rights Film Festival (MCHRFF) is launching its first-ever crowdfunding campaign to support filmmakers around the world. With a goal of raising $50,000 by Aug. 22, 2022, the funds will be used to help cover the cost of bringing human rights filmmakers and activists to the College’s campus for programming that educates, engages, and inspires film enthusiasts, advocates for equity, and the student storytellers of the Atlanta University Center. To donate to the MCHRFF crowdfunding campaign, visit morehousehumanrightsfilmfestival.com/donate.

Amidst deep polarization and nationwide calls for racial justice, the MCHRFF was founded in 2019 to extend the College’s position as an institution founded on the principles of equality and social justice. Now in its fourth season, the festival has year-round programming that attracts diverse audiences who continue to have conversations on global human rights and social justice issues in hopes of moving the needle towards change.

“Our donors will be a part of building a sustainable long-term event that enjoys significant local community involvement,” said Kara Walker, executive director of the MCHRFF. “They have a unique opportunity to empower the next generation of filmmakers, activists, and humanitarians who will advance poignant, consequential stories, causes, and perspectives that ultimately impact change in the world.”

Scheduled for September 20-24, 2022 in person on the Morehouse campus and the Plaza Theatre, the festival’s documentary, feature-length, and short film screenings provoke discussions about immigration, race, gender identity, politics, health care, and law enforcement, along with many other human rights and social justice topics. The festival will also be accessible virtually from Sept. 20 - 30. Badges are now on sale at a 50 percent discount.
