Impact producers Hollie Fifer, Lina Srivastava, and Dina Purita Antonio-Jufri will serve as mentors for the first Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab. Their combined experience in impact production and excellent networks in the Asia-Pacific will guide the participants in ensuring their environmental video initiatives create more impact.
EngageMedia shared at Media Burn’s “Virtual Talks with Video Activists” its experience in using video, open technology, and impact production to support regional movements and raise awareness on social and environmental issues in the Asia-Pacific.
EngageMedia invites Asia-Pacific video initiatives focused on environmental issues to apply to our Video for Change Impact Lab, which seeks to strengthen the capacity of filmmakers in planning, producing, analysing, and sustaining the impacts of their work.
At this year’s DaangDokyu: A Festival of Philippine Documentaries, EngageMedia co-presents two documentary masterclasses and a roundtable discussion on the state of Philippine media. The festival proper is divided into six main sections, in which select Filipino films are grouped and screened according to the following weekly themes: Martial Law, Ecology, Nation, Taboo, Localities, and Futures.
EngageMedia’s short documentary “Shooting COVID-19: Media Frontliners in Manila” has been chosen to be part of a special online screening at the 32nd Gawad Alternatibo film competition, a part of the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival by the Cultural Centre of the Philippines (CCP). The documentary is one of three films under the program, “Quarantimes Chronicles, Documentaries, and Film Essays”.
Almost two months into the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon province, uncertainty and fear loom over the streets of Manila as dissatisfaction with the Philippine government’s COVID-19 pandemic response grows. Despite this, video journalists like JL Burgos continue to take risks and pursue stories from marginalised communities to create films that call for a better society after the pandemic.
The video “Manila’s Poor Under Lockdown” delves into the fears of vendors, jeepney drivers and homeless people as the megacity shuts down amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic.
