Student Verzió screenings for high schoolers

Student Verzió between 9-10-11 November and 14-15-16 November, at the Művész Cinema and Corvin Cinema

The 19th edition of the Verzió International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival will again organize the Student Verzió, free screenings and discussions for high school students and their teachers. High school groups can choose from five creative documentaries. For the first time, in addition to the traditional morning screenings, the students can watch the latest human rights and environmental films in the afternoon as well. The morning screenings will again take place at the Művész Cinema, while the afternoon screenings will be held at the Corvin Cinema. 

What is Student Verzió about?

The Student Verzió program brings current issues that affect everyone closer to students through creative documentaries on topics such as climate change, or migration, while some of the films also address the difficulties of growing up in an original way. Each screening will be followed by a moderated discussion which aims at providing students with knowledge that will help them to explore the wider context of the themes in the films, as well as to reflect on the specifities of the documentary genre.

In this year's selection, they can meet forest defenders in Canada (BeforeThey Fall), Danish youngsters looking for a way forward in an alternative high school (Dare to Do Whatever), a teenage influencer from Berlin (Girl Gang), a Finnish-Somali family moving to Africa (Golden Land), and a refugee fighting for Hungarian citizenship (Ali, the Hungarian Yazidi).
