62 Films from 37 Countries Shown at Verzio 13
The 13th edition of Verzio International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, organized with the support of Blinken OSA Archivum November 8-13 showcased 62 films from 37 countries in four cinemas. The festival attracted over 5,000 viewers. Within the framework of the festival and with the support of CEU’s Visual Studies Platform (VSP), DocLab production workshop “The Roads to Integration” took place at the new CEU Mirabaud Media Lab. Eight participants from five countries made short powerful films and trailers focusing on people who had to strike new roots and reflecting on their journeys or experiences about their new home. An international team of filmmakers, editors, and human rights experts offered guidance and mentorship in structuring, editing, and post-production. The 3-5 minute films are personal statements calling for understanding and action. The films were premiered at Blinken OSA Archivum on November 12. VSP at CEU will host the screening of the films in the coming weeks.
On November 17-19 Verzio festival continues in Pecs, Szekesfehervar, and Szeged.
