Applications are now open for the 2012 ICCL Human Rights Film Awards, marking the competition’s fourth year as Ireland’s only human rights short film competition.
The aim of the Human Rights Film Awards is to provide film students, filmmakers and those working in human rights with an opportunity to contribute to human rights discourse in Ireland, grappling with issues which affect some of the most vulnerable members of Irish society through the medium of film.
Over the past three years, the competition has produced shortlisted films of outstanding quality which cast light on a range of human rights issues in new and creative ways.
The 2012 competition will also continue to widen its reach to younger people in second-level education through the Human Rights in Under a Minute Challenge, which will launch in January 2012, and through the Human Rights Films in Schools Project).
The competition deadline is 16 April 2012, and full details of how to apply are available here.
