The Summer School in Cinema, Human Rights and Advocacy is a training initiative, jointly developed by the Global Campus of Human Rights and Picture People, which will take place from 30 August to 8 September 2021.
This year the Summer School programme will be delivered in a blended format with online and in presence sessions in Venice Lido, Italy, both at the Global Campus and the Venice International Film Festival venues.
The Summer School offers an exciting programme of lectures, film screenings, discussions, working groups and a storytelling workshop that combine human rights expertise, media studies and video advocacy strategies.
As part of the programme participants are required to watch and analyse a selection of human rights related screenings at the 78th Venice International Film Festival. Whenever possible, filmmakers, jury members and critics are invited to discuss their work with the Summer School participants. Participants will be given a Cinema category accreditation pass to the Film Festival giving access to a selection of festival screenings.
This year’s programme is focusing on ‘delivering social change to children and young people’ in the broader framework of human rights protection and promotion.
The faculty is composed by internationally acclaimed experts in film, television, photography and human rights working under the coordination of the two programme directors Nick Danziger, photographer and filmmaker, and Claudia Modonesi, human rights expert and media trainer, who will also conduct storytelling workshops throughout the whole duration of the school.
Application deadline: 20 June 2021
