How can human rights issues be incorporated into film?
How can films enhance human rights awareness?
How to use films for influencing social change?
Since 2005 the Summer School in Cinema, Human Rights and Advocacy (CHRA) brought together students and professionals from all over the world involved in the fields of Human Rights Cinema and Advocacy to reflect on the use of film and video advocacy as an instrument for enhancing human rights awareness on critical social, political and environmental issues, and to influence change.
Following the success of past years, the Huston School of Film & Digital Media and the Irish Centre for Human Rights in Galway, Ireland are pleased to organise a fourth edition of the summer school from 27th of June to the 6th of July 2013. The Summer School will coincide with Films That Matter , a three day human rights film event organised in Galway by Amnesty Ireland and One World Centre in order to give participants the chance to assist human rights films which forms a basis for critical discussion.Scholarships Available!
