Video Distribution Workshop in Penang!
April 19, 2009 09:00 PM
There is a good video in your hand; it could be on indigenous land rights, political turmoil or your community coming together to solve an environmental issue; it is a video you think would other people would benefit from watching...what do you do?
TV stations aren't going to show it. You can send it to some film festival but is it reaching your audience? Do you print 100 copies and pass it to friends? Do you put it on some shelves and hope people buy it? Do you upload it to YouTube and wait for someone to watch it?Is there an effective way to get your video out there into the path of your mass audience? Maybe you have to do a bit of everything.
We at Engagemedia would like to share with you how producers of critical films around the world are distributing their videos online. EngageMedia is a video sharing, free software and skills building initiative focussed on social justice and environmental issues within Asia-Pacific.
For this workshop we have also invited Fahmi Reza to share his experience of effectively distributing his growing, cult documentary – 10 Tahun Sebelum Merdeka!
This workshop is provided free of charge, however seating is limited to 20 people.
Only available for civil society/NGOs/activists/independent producers of films and videos relating to social justice and environmental issues.
