For anyone that purchases a ticket, we appreciate your support. Your ticket purchase allows the festival to pay the filmmakers sharing their work in our festival, and supports the essential work of longtime co-presenters, Film at Lincoln Center and IFC Center who provide an essential space to enjoy the arts and participate in public dialogue in New York City and beyond. 


We do not want the cost of entry to these films to be a barrier for participation in these events.  If the price of buying a ticket to any of the films in the festival would prevent you from participating, please email the following address (filmticket@hrw.org) + an auto-reply email will send you a free ticket code. We have set aside a set # of tickets per film on a first come first-served basis. Once the free tickets are no longer available, the code will no longer work. For anyone that purchases a ticket, we appreciate your support. Your ticket purchase enables us to make tickets free for those who might otherwise be unable to watch. This also allows the festival to support the filmmakers for sharing their work in our festival and for the festival to cover the cost of hosting the films online.
