Campus Ambassador Program

The campus ambassador program gives university students the opportunity to join a global community of filmmakers and women’s rights activists. Ambassadors serve as a bridge, connecting their university community to film and media that advance women’s rights and stories from around the world. This program is a unique opportunity to spark meaningful dialogue, all while connecting with a diverse community of filmmakers, storytellers, and activists around the world. We see women’s storytelling as an act of courage and are excited to share stories and foster storytellers at your school.

Mini Film Festival: Uncensoring Women's Voices

In light of the challenging nature of gathering in person, we have created a mini film fest called Uncensoring Women's Voices featuring a compilation of shorts from Iran, Israel, France, Pakistan, and the USA. You can host the festival any way you see fit! You'll get access to one video file of all five short films (totalling 45 minutes) along with materials for facilitating an engaging conversation in your community.
