The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival (HRAFF) has just finished up in Melbourne but is about to hit the road and travel to the other major cities across Australia. Festival Director Ella McNeill joined Beth to chat about the Melbourne leg of the tour, the importance of accurate representation of gender, sex and culture both on screen and behind the screen and the ways in which conversations about human rights issues can continue post HRAFF.
