2019 Festival

InLight Human Rights Documentary Film is an entirely student-run film festival aimed at promoting interaction between students, scholars, and practitioners who all share an investment in the many struggles for human rights occurring around the world. Inaugurated in 2015, the fourth edition of ILFF, taking place October 10–12, will feature five screenings featuring guests associated with each of the film. Our mission is to promote powerful documentaries that speak to contemporary issues and to bring the knowledge and experience of a diverse group of filmmakers to the attention of the IU and Bloomington communities. All screenings take place at IU Cinema. Guest filmmakers/scholars will be present at each film screening to participate in a post-film discussion. This partnership is supported by IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.

Curated by Joseph Wofford of The Media School, with support from the IU Funding Board, The College of Arts and Humanities Institute, The Center for Documentary Research and Practice, The Media School, Cinema and Media Studies, the Journalism Program at The Media School, Department of International Studies, Cultural Studies Program Black Film Center Archive, and IU Cinema.
