Call for Applications, the #Summer #School in #Cinema #Human #Rights and #Advocacy



Deadline:  31 July 2018
Open to: Graduates, professionals of the human rights, media, NGO and advocacy sector and anyone who uses or is interested in using audio-visual media
Venue: 27 August – 5 September 2018, in Venice, Italy


The 13th edition of the Summer School in Cinema Human Rights and Advocacy is a training initiative jointly developed by EIUC and CHRA. The 10-day intense training is aimed at young professionals wishing to broaden their understanding on the connections between human rights, films, digital media and video advocacy, to share ideas and foster participatory and critical thinking on urgent human rights issues, debate with experts and filmmakers from all over the world during the 75th Venice international Film Festival and learn how to use films as a tool for social and cultural change.

EIUC launched the summer school programme in 2005 and was meant to be a one-off event but given the success of that initial programme, the summer school ran for another four years in Venice before moving in 2010 to the Huston School of Film & Digital Media part of the National University of Ireland in Galway where it flourished for other six years. In 2017 the Summer School returned to its birthplace in Venice.
