8x8 Film Festival - University College Cork - 30th September to 4th October 2013

8x8 Film Festival: is presented by Suas Educational Development and UCC Suas Society in partnership with the Centre for Global Development from Monday 30th September to Friday 4th October in UCC.

 

8x8 is a new and exciting documentary film festival that features an explosive line up of world class documentary features that will get your brain firing, your blood boiling and your heart racing. The festival brings to life 8 of the most pressing issues of our generation through storytelling in a way that will challenge you to sit up, stand up and want to take action.

 

Throughout the festival there will be workshops, panel discussions and special guest appearances from directors and producers.

 

To find out more about the films, the workshops, the panel discussions and guests, see below.

 

We would like to thank Irish Aid and EuropeAid for their funding towards this project. The ideas, opinions and comments in the festival do not necessarily represent or reflect Irish Aid or EuropeAid policy.

 

Suas Educational Development: is a movement dedicated to addressing educational disadvantage in Ireland and the Global South. We believe in the power of education to create real and lasting positive social change, at both individual and community levels, and we work with partners to develop, deliver, monitor and evaluate quality education programmes in Ireland, India and Kenya. But education isn't just important in areas of disadvantage. Education for all members of society about how the world works and why huge social inequality still exists in a world of wealth is critical to create social change as well. That's where the 8X8 film festival and the new website www.stand.ie (see below) come in. In order for social change to be realised, we need a mass movement of people behind it, engaging with it, supporting it and acting for it. For further information please see www.suas.ie

 

 

www.stand.ie is a new project of Suas Educational Development that seeks to give students a voice on development issues. Developed by students for students, stand.ie is a dynamic website that contains articles with diverse and sometimes even opposing viewpoints on the big issues that shape and influence our ever-changing world and promotes development-themed events of possible interest to students. At the core of stand.ie is the belief that real change can be achieved and that students are important actors in making change happen.
