The 12th edition of the Summer School in Cinema Human Rights and Advocacy is a training initiative jointly developed by the EIUC and CHRA. The 7-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 to foster participatory and critical thinking on urgent human rights issues, debate with experts and filmmakers from all over the world during the 74th Venice international Film Festival and learn how to use films as a tool for social and cultural change.

EIUC 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.

In 2017 the Summer School returns to its birthplace in Venice in association with 74th Venice International Film Festival.


A certificate will be awarded to participants who attend 90% of the Summer School sessions and film screenings.


The Summer School offers an exciting programme of lectures, film screenings, discussions and working groups that combine human rights expertise, media studies and video advocacy strategies. The eight sessions develop issues relating to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights illustrated in Films, a History of Human Rights Cinema, Freedom of Expression and Censorship, the Role of the Media in Advancing Human Rights Causes, the Use of Video in Human Rights Documentation and Advocacy, Production and Distribution of Human Rights Films and Social Documentaries and Documentary Film Project Development. Each module is illustrated by film or documentary screenings.

As part of the programme participants are required to watch and analyse a selection of human rights related screenings at the 74th Venice International Film Festival. Whenever possible, filmmakers, jury members and critics from the cinema world are invited to participate to discussions with the summer school participants. Participants will be given a 3-day Cinema accreditation to the Film Festival giving access to a selection of festival screenings.

The school programme may be subject to changes during the film festival period in order to accommodate festival screenings and meetings with festival’s personalities with teaching sessions.

The programme doesn’t include technical aspects of filmmaking and film production.

Admission Requirements

  • Target: Graduates, professionals of the human rights, media, NGO and advocacy sector and anyone who uses or is interested in using audio-visual media as a tool for promoting social change are encouraged to apply to the Summer School.

The School selects a maximum of 30 participants.

  • Course language: all courses will be held in English. It is, therefore, essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.


  • Eligibility: Participants are selected on the basis on their motivation, practice and commitment to human rights, advocacy and media issues as well as their background and professional experiences. Gender and regional balance is taken into account in order to form a homogeneous group.

EIUC aims to give participants as much time as possible for the organisation of visa, travelling and accommodation (see also: Practical Information).

Applicants Requiring Visas

Non-EU applicants require a Visa to access Italy.

Students requiring Visas usually need to produce an official letter of invitation from the course to the Visa Office. As these are only issued upon receipt of full payment, we encourage non-EU applicants to apply to the summer school at least 4 months prior the beginning of the school with full payment. Following notification of admission, the school will provide you with an invitation letter confirming that you are offered a place in the programme and the fees are paid.

Visa application process can take several months, we strongly recommend applicants to apply as soon as you receive the invitation letter from the Summer School in order to appeal any refusals.
