Human Rights film fest skeds ‘Regret,’ ‘City’

Special perfs include 'Odds,' 'Strike'

Thirty-three feature films and docus — most in their N.Y. premieres — will screen at the 10th annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival Friday through June 24 at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theatre.

Sked includes Barbara Sonneborn’s Oscar-nommed doc “Regret to Inform,” David Riker’s multi-feted feature “The City” and Goran Paskaljevic’s “The Powder Keg” (Yugoslavia), which won the ’98 Venice Film Fest’s Fipresci Prize for best film. A special screening of Deepa Mehta’s “Earth” (India) on Saturday will be followed by a discussion with the helmer.

“This year we have one of the strongest documentary and dramatic film schedules ever, the most international award-winning films and the most films made by filmmakers from the countries the films are about,” said fest director Bruni Burres.

Classics on bigscreen

Also set to unspool are two classics: Robert Wise’s 1959 noir “Odds Against Tomorrow” will unspool on Saturday, and a newly restored 35mm print of Sergei Eisenstein’s 1924 “Strike” will close the fest on June 24.

The Nestor Almendros Award — a $5,000 Howard Gilman Foundation grant to a new filmmaker working with human rights themes — is being doubled this year to honor both Sonneborn and Riker.

Organizers said the fest’s mission is to raise public awareness of international human rights issues.
