Docfilm Institute

DocFilm provides a structure for collaboration among artists, educators, policymakers, and scholars in the public and private.

San Francisco State University has a proud tradition of sponsoring Constitution and Citizenship Day. The conference provides multiple opportunities to reflect critically on the past, present, and future of constitutional rights, freedoms, citizenship, democracy, equality, and justice.

Doc Film has a session featuring a two-part documentary called, Re-coding Our Founding Documents: Video Explorations on Free Speech. In this session, you will watch two interviews that explore the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

Nato Green sits down with director Soumyaa Behrens to discuss comedy and Freedom of Speech. Are comedians allowed to joke about ANYTHING?

A UC Berkeley student evaluates the difference of freedom of speech and hate speech with personal experiences.

The conference will be Sept. 18-19 from 9am to 5pm. Doc Film will present Tuesday, Sept. 19th from 2:10pm to 3:40pm in the SFSU Library, Room 121. Come join the discussion.
