Editing and Distributing Your Film: WITNESS How-To

WITNESS is a human rights organisation that uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations.
 
We created this toolkit to help you to use video more effectively in human rights and advocacy work. It's designed for human rights activists and advocates, filmmakers, journalists and citizen journalists around the world.
 
"After Filming" prepares you and the people you're working with to:
 
- assess whether footage is reliable
- edit effectively and ethically
- distribute your video or film for maximum impact
 
The other parts of the toolkit cover what to do to prepare for filming, and how to film safely and effectively.
