Film has constantly played a major role in foregrounding global human rights issues, but can it inspire tangible social change? Filmmakers and industry professionals will reflect on approaches to subject matter, impact campaigns, and common obstacles to activist films. Central to this panel is the question: how can film stimulate activism and progress beyond its initial exhibition?
