5th February 2010

The Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) has announced its second Human Rights Film Awards

Individual film students, filmmakers, and/ or those with a strong interest in human rights are invited to submit an original short film focusing on a particular human rights-related issue in, or related to, Ireland.

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.

Through the Human Rights Film Awards, the ICCL hopes to raise public awareness about human rights in an Irish context, bringing attention to inequalities which exist today and inspiring others to work towards solutions, creating in a more equitable society.

Each film must be original, up to a maximum of 15 minutes in length, and can be in any form, be it live action, animation, fiction, drama or documentary.

The application deadline is Friday, 16 April 2010, and further information on the competition rules is available from the web site.
