The ACT Human Rights Film Festival, produced by CSU’s Department of Communication Studies in the College of Liberal Arts, goes beyond the powerful films that it features to take real ACTion in support of human rights around the world. ACT brings together the CSU and northern Colorado community to witness human rights stories from around the world and to move toward change through meaningful dialogue after each screening. These inspiring conversations are special educational opportunities to discuss ACT films with those closest to them – the filmmakers, film subjects, and activists who brought the film to life. The audience is given the opportunity to deeply engage with the film themes, strengthening their resolve to make a real change. In the past, Q&A guests have included Harry Belafonte, Rory O’Neill, and Raja Jan.

Ensure that these powerful conversations continue at the ACT Film Festival. You can help us bring international guests such as Rohingya refugees, Native American musicians, advocates for women and women’s rights, and global climate change activists to the 2018 ACT Human Rights Film Festival.
