Logo Movies that Matter - Educatief Take your students to MtMF 2018!

The perfect film for your curriculum | €5 student rate | Monday 26 March – Thursday 29 March

Ever wanted to introduce your students to film as an educational tool? Look no further! Movies that Matter has a mission 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.  

Practical information
Interested? 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.

Jaha's Promise and
City of Joy

As part of our annual Activist competition program, we invite eight human rights defenders that play a key role in a documentary to partake in our festival and engage in discussions with the audience. 

Jaha's Promise follows the life and activism of Jaha Dukureh, a Gambian anti-female genital mutilation campaigner who returns to her country of birth to confront the harmful tradition that she and 200 million women and girls have undergone globally.

The City of Joy is a community for women survivors of violence in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The eponymous film chronicles the institution’s first class of resilient women as they process their trauma and create a revolutionary community. Featured Congolese women's rights activists Jane Mukuninwa and Christine Schuler Deschryver will join the screenings for a discussion.

Tehran Taboo

This year we introduce our theme program Second Sex. Women are disadvantaged worldwide, varying from sexual oppression in Iran to inequality in the job market in the West. The inequality is sometimes open and visible, but often difficult to notice at first sight.

In Second Sex we will discuss the unequal treatment of men and women, with films and conversations about the resistance against visible and invisible discrimination and oppression.

One of the films featured in Second Sex is Tehran Taboo. The lives of three strong-willed women and a young musician cross paths in Tehran’s schizophrenic society where sex, adultery, corruption, prostitution and drugs coexist with strict religious law. In this bustling modern metropolis, avoiding prohibition has become an everyday sport and breaking taboos can be a means of personal emancipation.
