Human Rights Speak Truth

January 17, 2019

Robert F. Kennedy Video Contest

“THE GREATEST VOICE IS THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE – SPEAKING OUT – IN PROSE, OR PAINTING OR POETRY OR MUSIC; SPEAKING OUT – IN HOMES AND HALLS, STREETS AND FARMS, COURTS AND CAFES – LET THAT VOICE SPEAK AND THE STILLNESS YOU HEAR WILL BE THE GRATITUDE OF MANKIND.” ~Robert F. Kennedy

Middle and high school students are invited to create short videos that highlight the work of a human rights defender. Year 8 for this opportunity is available from a partnership with the American Federation of Teachers and the Tribeca Film Institute. In creating these short videos, whether they be documentaries, narrative films or digital photo essays, students not only learn about human rights, but also become champions of change and social justice.

Submissions are judged by a panel of film industry experts, actors and educators, and contest winners will have their films premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. You can learn more on the contest website at THIS LINKFind the guidelines for the contest and see examples of work submitted from the last seven years. DEADLINE: February 17, 2019.
