Call to ACT

Films screened throughout the ACT Human Rights Film Festival aim to spur you to action. More often than not, audiences have one thing on their mind by the time Q&A sessions come to a close: “But, what can I do?”

We’re here to answer that question! Follow the links below for actions you can take right here and now to help in the areas of each of the 2017 festival themes: Art as Resistance, Immigration & Exile, LGBTQ Rights, Race & Class in America, War & Genocide, and Women’s Rights.

2017 Call to ACT Partners

Films screened throughout the ACT Human Rights Film Festival will hopefully engage your heart and mind – and spur you to action. Sure, Q&A sessions that follow each screening will deepen your understanding of the issue at hand. More often than not, audiences have one thing on their mind by the time Q&A sessions come to a close: “But, what can I do?”

Inspired by the Call2Action Program launched by the Boulder International Film Festival, the ACT Human Rights Film Festival is committed to helping audiences channel their energies and interests in making a difference in the world.

Each ACT film is paired with one or more local, national, or international nonprofit organizations whose mission addresses or relates to the issue at hand. Representatives from these nonprofit organizations will be onsite and ready to help connect film-goers to additional information, opportunities for action, and organizational involvement at home and beyond.
