Justice on Trial® Film Festival Featured

September 16, 2017 WHEN JUSTICE ISN'T JUST

Justice on Trial® Film Festival screening is scheduled for September 16 2017 at 3:30 pm at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles

Collaboration at Work

Justice on Trial® Film Festival began out of a conversation between Michelle Alexander (Author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness) and Susan Burton (2010 CNN Hero; Founder and Executive Director of A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project). These two women emanate the power and commitment needed to change the narrative for millions of Americans suffering from the external and internal impact of mass incarceration.

For a generation losing faith in the news and contemporary media, the festival will embolden filmmakers in their pursuit of seeking social justice. Documentary filmmakers are on the rise and are addressing social justice issues in a deeper way. The focus of this festival is to bring those impacted by mass incarceration, their advocates, and potential advocates together to expose the injustices of mass incarceration and explore solutions that create necessary systemic changes within local communities. Films that are poignant and thought-provoking addressing the impact of mass incarceration will have the potential of being selected. Our film festival gives filmmakers, advocates, and those affected a platform to discover the human side of the story.

The festival is sponsored by Loyola Marymount University and will be held at their beautiful campus in University Hall.
