Screening Rights was set up in 2015, initially as a film event series run by Michele Aaron and John Horne at the University of Birmingham.
With the evident appetite for these films and debate on these issues, Michele started the annual Screening Rights Films Festival. Collaborating with key institutions, organisations and social action groups in the region, it has grown steadily and is now in its third year. The University of Warwick has joined the University of Birmingham as key partner for 2017.
Screening Rights aims to be a space to inspire and develop debates on the relationships between film, vulnerability, human adversity, and social action.
