Welcome to the HRAFF 2017 CineSeeds Ambassador Program!
CineSeeds is a youth leadership platform that shines a light on human rights through film and the arts. This year the CineSeeds festival will take place on the afternoon of Sunday 7th May at ACMI Cinemas.
What’s it like to be a CineSeeds Youth Ambassador? (watch the video)
This year’s CineSeeds Program features two films which spotlight indigenous rights and storytelling.
The CineSeeds Ambassador program invites young people to build a youth audience at HRAFF. The Ambassadors raise awareness around the two CineSeeds films that will screen for two very different age groups.
Option 1: Junior Ambassador (Junior & Primary School)
Option 2: Senior Ambassador (Senior & High School)
The registration for 2017 Ambassadors has now closed but please let us know if you would like information on becoming an Ambassador in 2018! Just email: firstname.lastname@example.org
And please come along to the films on 7 May, we would love to chat with you!
WHAT DOES AN AMBASSADOR DO?
The role of the CineSeeds Ambassador is to support, represent and promote the event.
There’s many different ways to do this but the idea is to tell all your friends, parents of friends, families and teachers all about it. Ideas may include:
- Emailing a CineSeeds invitation to your friends
- Talking to your class about the importance of human rights and the festival (we even give you a presentation you can use if you like!)
- Presenting at school assemblies
- Putting a notice in the school newsletter
- Putting up posters at your school or in your community
- Organising groups of your friends and community to come to the event
And of course:
- Attending the event!
There’s no formula Ambassadors have to follow. It’s up to each Ambassador to be as creative as they like.
This is a limited honour, with selected places available.
Human rights are a basic set of rights that every single person in the world is entitled to.
Examples of “hot spot” human rights issues that affect young people today are: bullying, child rights, gender equality, environmental rights, poverty, freedom of speech, racism and disability.
For instance: did you know that an estimated 250 million kids aged 5-14 in developing countries are currently working?
If you would like to make a stand for human rights and promote the awareness and discussion of human rights issues, put your hand up to become an ambassador for this year’s CineSeeds.
We are seeking kids who enjoy being leaders, from a variety of different schools and community groups. To become an Ambassador, register here.
For further enquiries please contact the CineSeeds Coordinator.
