The shortlist of six outstanding short film entries to the 2014 Irish Council for Civil Liberties Human Rights Film Awards has been announced. The 2014 ICCL Human Rights Film Awards invited amateur and professional filmmakers to submit an original short film on a human rights theme.
The aim of the Human Rights Film Awards is to provide filmmakers and those working in human rights with an opportunity to contribute to human rights discourse internationally, grappling with issues which affect some of the most vulnerable members of society through the medium of film.
The shortlist consists of six hard-hitting documentaries that combine filmmaking with international human rights activism. Issues explored include homelessness, the arts and their impact on health, immigration, holocaust survivors, the land/food crisis in Guatamala and the plight of Syrian refugees.
The films are now available to view on the Awards website HERE.
The Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) will host a star-studded Gala screening of the six shortlisted films on 26 June 2014 in Dublin’s Light House Cinema.
