FARGO — The first ever North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival will kicks off Wednesday night.

It’s happening at the Fargo Theatre and will run through Friday.

It begins at 6:30 each night.

You can see 22-unique films made in eight different countries while at the festival.

Each work brings attention to people of different cultures, races, and sexual orientations.

“We really want to encourage people to embrace the idea that human rights are for everyone. So, we really encourage everybody to come to the festival and to be a part of the festival and embrace the idea that we are all equal and celebrate the humanity,” said Sean Coffman, Executive Director, The Human Family.

Some of the filmmakers from the 22-works will be at the festival.

You can talk to them after, during a panel discussion.
