Cinema and Human Rights Days is a two day event taking place on March 15th and 16th, 2013 at Birkbeck, University of London and it offers an exciting programme of lectures, discussions,  screenings of extracts and film screenings selected from the London Human Rights Watch Film Festival.  
The event is addressed to students and young professionals of human rights in the film and media sector in London wishing to broaden their understanding on the connection between film, media and human rights, on what a human rights film is, and how human rights  films can  raise awareness  and ultimately be able to influence cultural, political and social  change. 
Participants are afforded the opportunity to share ideas, engage with and understand the perspectives of others, increase their awareness of sensitive human rights issues, network with practitioners and academics and learn how they themselves can contribute to the field of human rights through the medium of film.
