In May, we announced a 'Best Script for Human Rights Educational Events' competition so that film club moderators could share with their audience involvement techniques, best practices, and experiences. The participants had to choose one film from the list and develop a discussion for one of the target audiences: pupils; students; adults; employees of State penitentiary service of Ukraine; convicts and individuals who are placed on probation.
11 June 2020
The 'Best Script for Human Rights Educational Events'  competition, which was announced for the film clubs moderators, lasted for a month. An expert jury consisted of representatives of the Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union (UHHRU) carefully reviewed all 48 scripts submitted during the month and chose the finalists.
