Internationale Filmtage der Menschenrechte e.V.
(Nuremberg, Germany)

Internationale Filmtage der Menschenrechte e.V. organizes the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) and its 4-part school project Open Eyes. The Open Eyes school screenings present exceptional films which educate students about human rights issues and strengthen their media skills. All film screenings are accompanied pedagogically and followed by discussions between the students on one hand, and the filmmaker, the protagonist or a human rights expert on the other. The Open Eyes Youth Jury is composed of 5 students who watch the selected festival films in special screenings, discuss them and select the film they believe to be best suited for human rights education in schools. The Open Eyes Youth Reporters report each on a festival film while experienced journalists lend editorial support and publish their reviews in the newspaper. A one-day film studies seminar for teachers aims to increase their film literacy and enable them to follow-up on the screenings in their schools in an informed way.

The Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) and precisely its school project Open Eyes experts will actively participate in the development of the joint Audio-Visual Human Rights Education Toolkit by transferring its experience and know-how to the project partners and thus, contributing to their professional development and building of expertise. The Nuremberg Human Rights festival will also host a training for all the project partners in Germany, inviting key European stakeholders and experts in formal and informal human rights education, which alongside the final project event in Skopje, should set the foundations of the future Audio-Visual Human Rights Education network in Europe.
