With the presence of various countries, the 5th New York Human Rights Film Festival (NYHRFF) took place at the Tribeca theater in New York, the USA, to raise awareness about human rights.
During the five-day event, 30 films of different genres were screened, including fiction, documentaries, and animation, by filmmakers coming from the United States, Spain, France, Greece, Austria, Czech Republic, South Africa, Turkey, and Syria.
During the festival, “Tomorrow We Continue,” a short film by the Lebanese Motion Graphics freelancer and director Abdullah Ghanem won the Best Animated Film award.
“Tomorrow We Continue” is a moving and silent animation short film highlighting the stories of Syrian families still searching for their loved ones who went missing during the Syrian war.
The short film has been previously selected for the Independent Short Awards in Los Angeles and in the New York Human Rights Film Festival, where it was acclaimed.
