HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM VIDEO CATALOG 2006-7


Our Mission


Founded in 1999, the HRWIFF High School Program is a human rights media resource. Our program offers videos and educational materials to high school and after-school teachers across the country. Our mission is to promote the inclusion of human rights curricula in secondary and after-school education and to inspire youth dialogue and youth media production around issues of human rights.
This year we are happy to be able to offer more than 40 new films through our partnership with Mediarights.org and P.O.V./American Documentary.
Please take a moment to look through our catalog and contact Program Manager Jen Nedbalsky with all video requests at (212) 216-1247 or nedbalj@hrw.org.
Our Partners:
The Media That Matters Film Festival brings innovative shorts and take-action tools to audiences around the country, all year long. Every year, 16 jury-selected films by independent and youth producers stream online, tour the country through community screenings, are broadcast on TV and are distributed as a jam-packed DVD to teachers and activists. A free Teacher's Guide is available through the festival website: www.mediathatmattersfest.org

The Human Rights Watch International Film Festival is the Principle Partner of the Media That Matters Film Festival. Every year, HRWIFF hosts an installation of Media That Matters at the Walter Reade Theatre's Furman Gallery at Lincoln Center.

P.O.V./American Documentary and the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival (HRWIFF) High School Program are pleased to announce Youth Views: a joint project designed to support youth (21 and under), educators and youth-serving community based organizations in the use of contemporary social issue documentary by providing them with resources and training in facilitation and media literacy that will enhance their leadership skills, programs and curricula.
Youth Views offers new models for working with youth and the media for civic engagement that can be replicated by youth-serving and civic-minded organizations in New York City and across the country.
Global Nomads Group dedicated to heightening children's understanding and appreciation for the world and its people. Using interactive technologies such as videoconferencing, GNG brings young people together face-to-face to meet across cultural and national boundaries to discuss their differences & similarities, and the world issues that affect them. This year we will be partnering on presenting the PULSE program with GNG, and helping HRWIFFHSP schools participate in videoconference dialogues on human rights.
