In Light Film Festival will start this Thursday, March 5th, and run through Saturday, March 7th. Two filmmaker roundtables will be held on Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th. Featured among the films is 2012’s Call Me Kuchu, an essential complement to Roger Ross Williams’ documentary, God Loves Uganda, which screened at IU Cinema in September 2014.
“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.” ~IU Cinema Program
