Summer school with focus on cinema and human rights

How can films be used as an instrument for enhancing
human rights awareness?

At a seminar in Italy students and professionals involved in the fields of human rights and cinema will seek answers to this question – with lectures, discussions, screenings of films shown at the 2005 Venice International Film Festival, and a production of essays.

“Summer School on Cinema and Human Rights” is organised by European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation, based in Venice, Italy (, and the course takes place in Venice from 25 August to 15 September 2005.

Deadline for applications is 1 May 2005.

The Summer School is facilitated by the Venice Film Festival, members of the Human Rights Film Network and UNESCO.
