The In Light Film Festival is aimed at promoting and supporting the intersections of human rights and documentary film. Documentary films have long been used as effective teaching aids and as tools for public debate on contemporary socio-political issues. ILFF aims to facilitate dialogue between professionals in the field of human- rights documentaries and the general public. Q&A sessions with invited filmmakers will thus be a central focus of ILFF. The debates will be moderated by IU scholars whose research intersects with the focus of each film. Furthermore, the IU Cinema will also host a series of ILFF free roundtables where the invited documentarists and IU faculty will discuss documentary film and human rights.
