Annual American University Human Rights Film Series
Each fall the American University's Center for Social Media and the Washington College of Law's Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law host a Human Rights Film Series, showcasing the power of film to educate and advocate on human rights issues.
Check back in July 2013 for details about the 14th Annual Human Rights Film Series coming this fall.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
The Human Rights Film Series, first organized in 2000 and presented by the Center for Social Media and the Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law , showcases the power of film to educate and advocate about human rights. Four exceptional documentary films that exhibit excellence in filmmaking and explore a broad spectrum of human rights issues are screened each fall. Following each screening, there is an opportunity for the filmmaker and human rights advocates to discuss the film and its issues with the audience. The Centers also provide resource pages to provide a deeper understanding of the underlying human rights issues discussed in the films. The Human Rights Film Series is free and open to the public.
