Human Rights Film Focus Nepal is dedicated to raising human rights awareness in Nepal through film and discussion. We do this by showcasing human rights films from all over the world in classrooms, community venues, organisations and in the media.
Shaking the Tree, our school outreach project, aims to screen human rights films and facilitate discussions on human rights issues in schools across Nepal. Schools are invited to participate in our program.

Human Rights Film Week 2012 took place in November and offered 24 films from all over the world and from Nepal for community and student audiences. International films that were screened included Bitter Seeds (India), Children of War (Uganda), Illegal (Belgium), No Look Pass (USA), Into the Current (Burma).
From September to the end of December 2012, HRFFN’s “Shaking The Tree” human rights education program impacted over 6,500 youth from twenty nine schools in seven districts of Nepal. We plan on substantially increasing those numbers in 2013 and look forward to collaborating with schools throughout the country in these efforts.
HRFFN was proud to honor the 16 Days United Nations Campaign to Eliminate Violence against Women and the International Human Rights Day by screening The Sari Soldiers on Nepal Television on December 8 at 2:15 pm. The film was followed by a live half hour hour panel discussion.
