MUBI, the online streaming service, has partnered with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival to bring past festival highlights to over 200 countries around the globe.

MUBI will screen a selection of retrospective titles from the Human Rights Watch Film Festival via its popular website, making these thought-provoking films available to audiences across the world to watch and discuss.

Titles began screening on MUBI 2 days ago, March 18, and they include a few titles previously highlighted on this blog, like Hatian filmmaker Raoul Peck's Moloch Tropical, and the Senegalese drama Tall as the Baobab Tree, directed by Jeremy Teicher.

"This is another great film festival to partner with as it means we are bringing truly stand out and important pieces of filmmaking to people around the world, and hopefully raising the awareness around some of the issues and abuses that Human Rights Watch sets out to deal with," said Efe Cakarel, Founder and CEO at MUBI.

The HRW film festival brings to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathise and demand justice for all people. MUBI’s mission is to bring unknown or little-known pieces of filmmaking arts to a wider number people, enabling them to have access to differentiated content on an accessible platform.

MUBI’s collaboration with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival continues the online cinema’s on- going project of making festivals accessible to global audiences. MUBI has worked with the Cannes Film Festival's 'Critics Week', the Venice, Rotterdam, Istanbul, Melbourne and São Paulo film festivals and many more.

Below is the list of films that are available to be screened:

Burma VJ (Anders Østergaard, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, UK, USA, Germany, Netherlands, Israel, Spain, Belgium, Canada, 2008)
