ICCL Human Rights Film Award

In 2008, the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) established the Human Rights Film Award to recognise the role of film in raising awareness of human rights. In 2019, Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival and ICCL will together re-launch the ICCL Human Rights Film Award as an integral part of our programme. The Award will celebrate films which allow audiences to connect with human stories and learn about the many forms of activism, as well as honouring filmmakers who passionately advocate for a better world.

In 2019, Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival and ICCL will together re-launch the ICCL Human Rights Film Award as an integral part of our programme.

A jury of leading film-makers and activists will select the winner from seven nominees which explore critical human rights issues: Another Day of Life, Gaza, Heartbound: A Different Kind of Love Story, Land Without God, Of Fathers and Sons, Rafiki, and The Public.
