The 5th annual Leicester Human Rights Arts and Film Festival starts on 4 December 2018 with Human Rights Without Borders, an event that will bring together a number of groups that have "Without Borders" as part of their name or which share the without Borders ethos.
Shortlisted for the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award 2016, this unique emerging company stars four refugee young men who made the arduous journey to the UK on their own as children from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania.
The goal of London Migration Film Festival is to portray the diversity, nuance and subjective experience within migration - including and beyond the refugee experience - in order to restore the dignity and humanity inherent within it. The programme hopes to challenge the rhetoric that overwhelmingly reduces migrants to simplistic categories: active enemies or passive victims.

This half-day event, part of ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, is organised in collaboration with the Department of Social Sciences, UCL to explore how different art forms can contribute to knowledge exchange and public engagement around timely research questions about migration.
