A shout out to the team of High Tide Don't Hide which has been selected for the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH) Industry programme Impact Days. High Tide was one of 16 documentaries to be chosen out of the 110 entries from around the world.
Directed and produced by Niva Kay, Emily McDowell, Nia Phipps and Phil Stebbing (The Rebel Film Collective, New Zealand) High Tide is about striking teenagers who discover that activism, authority, and awareness make for a steep learning curve in the race for existence.
The teams from the selected films will develop their impact campaigns through an Impact Lab and will be able to connect to strategic partners to put them effectively in place during the Impact Days in Geneva in March 2022.
To strengthen the potential of cinematic storytelling as a tool for social and cultural change, the FIFDH launched Impact Days in 2019, so filmmakers, producers, NGOs and foundations could get together to find potential alliances and strategies that will increase the quality and results of their joint actions to have a positive impact on the world.
