Call for Advocates- Filmmakers!
The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights (JHC) has long-standing ties with young artists fighting for rights through creative means. J4R 2019 will allow us to continue to bridge these communities through mentorship opportunities and programming that shares invaluable filmmaking skills from directing, editing, cinematography, producing, screenwriting, interviews, and ethics.
In partnership with STORYHIVE, other DIY filmmakers from MacEwan University, FAVA, The Edmonton Short Film Festival and Edmonton Community Arts Network (ECAN), we bring you The Free Media School, and we are looking for people like you!
