Call to ACT

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.

ACT films arepaired 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.
