The Moving Picture Institute will be holding a screening and panel event on Wednesday, March 14th, at the Violet Crown theater in Austin, about human rights and film.
One of the short films that will be screened was created for the Victims of Communism Foundation and is a sneak preview film about a courageous Polish woman who survived both Soviet and Nazi occupation of Poland. This short is a powerful look at what people endured at that time.
The Human Rights Foundation asserts that half the world’s population lives under authoritarianism. What can storytellers, filmmakers, and artists do to push back against oppression and create positive change in the world?
You’re invited to join the Moving Picture Institute’s human rights-based screening and masterclass. Featuring a sneak peak screening of the first five episodes of Smock Media’s “Witness Project” mini-documentary series and special bonus clips, the panel will discuss how filmmakers can amplify the work of human rights activists worldwide.
Doors open // 6:45pm
Masterclass // 7:00pm
Tickets are just $5 with promo code GOLDENTICKET, and that includes a post screening drink. https://splashthat.com/sites/view/humanrightsinfilm.splashthat.com
