Goals

The Ethics Lab is committed to creating a universally equipped workshop on filmmaking ethics, specifically sculpted to the measures of film students, wherever they are. The goal is to make students proud to share this sense of communal ethical dimension, according to whose world picture we are all similar beings in the sense that we are equally bound to live as moral agents, different only in our potential capacity to work that muscle through our lives in a way that will make us more fulfilled and creative contributors to our fellow humans.

The measurable outcome of this workshop—a multi-series of filmed ethical testimonies (evidences)—is to be presented on a designated page in CILECT’s website, one that is exclusively dedicated to the study, teaching, and researching of filmmaking ethics. The site’s main product is a continuously growing online archive of ethical video testimonies given by film students living and working around the world.

In the broadest sense, the causa final of this distinctive pedagogy is to yield a global collection of testimonies that create a one-of-a-kind universal site of ethical references in filmmaking culture.
