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 29 August to 7 September 2022 at the Global Campus Headquarters in Venice Lido, Italy.
The Summer School offers an exciting programme of lectures, workshops, working groups, tutorials, film screenings and discussions combining 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 79th Venice International Film Festival. Whenever possible, filmmakers and producers present at the Film Festival are invited to discuss their work with the Summer School participants. Participants will be provided with a Cinema category accreditation pass to the Film Festival giving access to a selection of screenings.
This year’s programme is focusing on the rights of children and young people in the broader framework of human rights protection and promotion.
Nick Danziger and Claudia Modonesi, Picture People’s directors, will run the 10-day programme with the contribution of experts in the fields of human rights, advocacy, film studies, film production and impact, and psychology.
Graduates, professionals of the human rights, media, NGO, advocacy and the third (voluntary) sector and anyone who uses or is interested in using audio-visual media as a tool for promoting human rights and social change are encouraged to apply to the Summer School.
Scholarships are offered to professionals and students whose field of expertise and research focuses on children rights and are, or wish to become, leaders in their community and worldwide to promote and protect the rights of the child through the connections between human rights, films, digital media and video advocacy.
