Screening at Beacon Film Festival

Date: 23 February 2017
Time: 18:00 - 21:00
Location: University of Hertfordshire

Media students from Oaklands College will be taking place in a Hertfordshire Film Festival in February, which will raise awareness of Victims’ Rights. 

The students have been invited by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner of Hertfordshire to create and submit their own films which explore issues faced by people who are a victim of crime in the UK.  It’s part of Victim Rights Week, a week-long initiative in Hertfordshire that that will highlight the experiences of victims of crimes across the county.  

Beacon was established in 2015 by Hertfordshire PCC as a hub that provides support to victims of crime, helping them to cope and recover from their ordeal.

All selected films will be screened in front of a live audience at the 400 capacity Weston Auditorium based at the University of Hertfordshire and will be given feedback from a panel of filmmakers, lecturers and members of the Police & Crime Commissioner's Office.

The film festival is set to take place on the 23rd February 2017, from 6pm onwards.
