Ever wanted to introduce your students to film as an educational tool? Look no further than Movies that Matter! Our mission is to open (young) people’s eyes to human rights through film. To achieve this, we host thought-provoking film screenings all throughout the year that stir debate and promote human rights education.
We gladly invite you to bring your students to the Movies that Matter Festival (23-31 March 2018 in the Hague). For the rate of €5 per student, we organize a screening of a film selected by you. Any film can be picked from our (soon to be announced) festival program, but we happily offer our advice as well. Our screenings feature carefully selected talks or Q&As with special guests to help students delve deeper into the subject matter of the chosen film.
Is your interest peaked? Please send an e-mail to our education department to book seats for your screening at our festival (located ca. 10 min. from The Hague Central Station) or to inquire about which films are best suited to your study program. Definitive film choices can be made at a later time. Film screenings can be arranged for Monday 26 March – Thursday 29 March, with a preferred time slot in the morning or afternoon to be discussed. If you have a notice board at your tuition, we'd gladly send you one of our film festival posters for free.
Besides film screenings, many students have also enjoyed the masterclasses we organize during our festival with directors, human rights activists or other significant guests. As our film program takes form, we will update you on the accompanying masterclasses that can also be booked for students.
