The (In)Justice for All Film Festival is an exciting and groundbreaking event designed to raise awareness about the magnitude of the harm caused by mass incarceration by harnessing the creative energies of dedicated, socially conscious filmmakers. See these films, expand your mind, grow your heart, and join the movement for justice.

6th Annual (In)Justice For All Film Festival
October 3rd - 12th, 2019
Our 2019 festival is just around the corner and we, along with our many partners, are in the final frenzy of putting together what will be the most exciting and meaningful festival yet.
A special shout out to our 2019 filmmakers. We have selected more than 30 films from those submitted into competition, and expect another 5- 10 films to be featured out of competition. Also, for the first time, we have developed a schedule so that real film fans will be able to see all of the films in competition - no time conflicts.
Congratulations to our 2019 Festival Awardees!
