Mission / description Now in it’s fifth year, "Impugning Impunity" fosters a community-wide dialog about justice, equality, and humanity through the presentation of documentaries on human rights issues, post-screening Q/A sessions with the film directors, and community talk-backs with human rights advocates and activists.

The Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives (ALBA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting social activism and the defense of human rights through educational programs. "Impugning Impunity" underscores ALBA’s commitment to uphold the values of the U.S. volunteers who fought fascism in the Spanish Civil War, by bringing human rights struggles to life through storytelling.

Awards & Prizes

A distinguished jury will award the best film from the Official Selection with the Harry Randall Award for Best Human Rights Documentary Feature. The festival will also award a prize to the Best Documentary Short.
This award was created in memory of Harry W. Randall, Jr. (1915-2012) who served in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade as Chief Photographer of the Photographic Unit of the 15th International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War.
This year, the members of our distinguished jury panel are the documentary filmmaker Rachel Anderson, the novelist and journalist Francisco Goldman, documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzmán, and documentary filmmaker Sam Sills.
