The 15th edition of the Summer School in Cinema Human Rights and Advocacy is a training initiative jointly developed by the Global Campus of Human Rights (GC) and Picture People. The 11-day intense training is aimed at young professionals wishing to broaden their understanding on the connections between human rights, films, digital media and video advocacy, to share ideas and foster participatory and critical thinking on urgent human rights issues, debate with experts and filmmakers from all over the world during the 77th Venice international Film Festival and learn how to use films as a tool for social and cultural change.
GC launched the summer school programme in 2005 and was meant to be a one-off event but given the success of that initial programme, the summer school ran for another four years in Venice before moving in 2010 to the Huston School of Film & Digital Media part of the National University of Ireland in Galway where it flourished for other six years. Since 2017 the Summer School is back to its birthplace in Venice Lido.
