Movies that Matter (Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

Movies that Matter
(Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

The Movies that Matter Foundation, an initiative of Amnesty International, organizes wide-ranging film programs in which human rights take center stage. The key activity of the foundation is the Movies that Matter Festival in The Hague. Every year during the Movies that Matter Festival, a human rights film festival takes place which is specifically aimed at young people: the Young Amnesty Film Days. Also, Movies that Matter advises and supports educators in screening human rights films at schools. Movies that Matter films are usually supported by free and specific teaching aids which have been developed in collaboration with teachers and are therefore highly appreciated.

Based on its years-long experience, the Movies that Matter Education Department will transfer within the project the best practices in training teachers, preparing human rights audiovisual manuals as well as using audiovisual materials and documentaries in teaching human rights to young people. Its main expertise being both the development and the application of the teaching manuals for using film and audiovisual materials in human rights education and awareness-raising, the Movies that Matter Education Department will also organize a training workshop for the other project partners in Amsterdam and share the experiences gained in the realm of audio-visual human rights education.
