The Summer School’s programme was originally launched in 2005 at the Inter-European University of Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) in Venice in cooperation with the Venice International Film Festival.
In 2010 the Summer School moved to the Huston School of Film & Digital Media at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
The 10th Summer School in Cinema, Human Rights and Advocacy will run at the Huston School of Film in Galway from 18th to 27th June 2015.
The 10 days intense training programme is addressed to students and young professionals of human rights in the film, media and advocacy sectors wishing to broaden their understanding on the connection between film, media and human rights, to share and develop ideas on a personal human rights film project.
Elements of the summer school include information on the fundamentals of human rights, how to raise awareness of human rights on camera, developing a project proposal and how these ideas should be pitched.
The Irish Centre for Human Rights and the Huston School of Film & Digital Media acknowledge the donors and friends of the Galway University Foundation for their generous support to CHRA.
Since 2012 CHRA received the support of the Media Program of the Open Society Foundations.
