Short Film Program: Youth Producing Change
Location: International House, 37th and Chestnut

Young people are on the frontlines of many of the world’s human rights crises, but we all too rarely get to hear their point of view. The third edition of Youth Producing Change shares powerful stories from young filmmakers across the globe as they turn the camera on their own lives and share their visions of change.

Part of the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival. The works featured during Selections from the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival help to put a human face on threats to individual freedom and dignity, and celebrate the power of the human spirit and intellect to prevail. They enable people to see human rights issues and their impact through the art of film, a medium that has the power to share individual stories of suffering and of strength across borders of all kinds. We see these films as capable of creating forums for discussion in communities across the Philadelphia Region and seek to empower everyone with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a very real difference.
