Video, Truth, and Expression in the Age of YouTube

Human Rights, Human Wrongs Documentary Film Festival, Witness, and Fritt Ord invite the public to the seminar Video, Truth, and Expression in the Age of YouTube, Tuesday 16 February, 2016, at 14:00-16:00 at Cinemateket (Oslo).

The seminar explore how videos shot by eyewitnesses, frontline human rights defenders, and citizen journalists are changing the face of news and the fight for human rights worldwide.

With millions of people now empowered by the mobile phones in their pockets, and video exploding as a tool for expression, how do we make sense of the sheer volume of footage emerging from all corners of the world? What innovative strategies can we employ to secure attention and accountability?
