A day of screenings, panels and discussion bringing together activist filmmakers from across the UK and beyond. Hosted by the Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures at University of Leeds, and working with the Radical Film Network, this event seeks to ask why and how we make activist films, from conception to dissemination, and asks what we can learn from each other to keep producing change.

Details of films, speakers and panels coming soon.
