Join the Pulitzer Center for a curated series of short films at the CUGH 2024 Conference. The films highlight communities around the world facing climate crises, fighting for access to health care, and recovering their livelihoods from public neglect and private profit imperatives.

The film festival includes short documentaries featuring communities fighting the impacts of long COVID-19 and struggling to get adequate prenatal care. Others follow laborers on the Chinese fishing fleet, investigate illegal logging in the Amazon, and highlight threats to biodiversity as the planet warms. A conversation with filmmakers and journalists Andrew Robinson and Aaron Martin will be part of festival screening and moderated by Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium and Outreach Program Coordinator Ethan Widlansky.

This event is free and open to conference participants and the general public.

The festival will screen films from the following reports:
