This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

The ACT Human Rights Film Festival is a weeklong community event featuring 15 international human rights films that address the topics of art as resistance and cultural resilience, human trafficking, disability rights, LGBTQ rights in Africa, homelessness, and the fight for democracy around the world. Participation in the Festival is offered to Osher members as a Festival pass that is valid for regular priced film screenings (13 total) that include filmmaker discussions and guest panels (the special event opening and closing night screenings are not included in the pass). Osher passholders will receive guaranteed seating up to 20 minutes prior to show time and seating on a space available basis after 20 minutes before show time.

Film screenings will take place at both the Lory Student Center Theater, located on the CSU campus, and the Lyric Cinema Café, located in downtown Ft. Collins. Two films will screen daily with late afternoon and evening start times. Pass details will be sent with package redemption confirmation the week of March 28th. Quantity of passes available limited to 30 and this course is exempt from the Value-Added Draw. The full festival film schedule will be available Monday, March 21, 2016.
