ACT Human Rights Film Festival- Volunteer Call
Friday, April 15th – Friday, April 22, Fort Collins, CO

Now casting volunteers to help create the first annual ACT Human Rights Film Festival produced by CSU Dept. of Communication Studies.

The ACT Human Rights Film Festival is born out of expertise in the Department of Communication Studies at Colorado State University in the area of media and visual culture. Dr. Scott Diffrient, Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies and recipient of the William E. Morgan Endowed Chair of Liberal Arts, is using funds from the endowed chair to establish the first-ever human rights film festival in Northern Colorado.

Human rights film festivals bring together, educate, and create a forum for dialogue among artists, filmmakers, citizens, scholars, advocates, and students on social justice issues of every kind. ACT will focus on the issues of GLBTQ rights, human trafficking, the fight for democracy, disability rights, homeless and more – issues which touch our community at a local and global scale.
