Compassion, Justice & Animal Rights
The Compassion, Justice & Animal Rights program provides a platform for filmmakers to share stories of inspiration and tools for creating a safe and humane world for all living beings, encouraging dialogue about how we treat and view animals as a community.
The Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award is presented to a film in this section that raises public awareness and provokes discussion about contemporary issues of social concern, with a focus on the rights, as well as the moral and ethical treatment of animals. The award is given to a film that inspires compassion, motivates action and compels change.
