Tech Tales, a collection of eight films that highlight human rights stories in the digital age, launches on Saturday, October 30. This first-ever public screening of the Tech Tales film collection coincides with the international celebration of World Internet Day, an apt time to turn a critical eye to the current digital rights issues being faced in the Asia-Pacific.
In an essay for the Network of Centers, EngageMedia executive director Andrew Lowenthal expounds on COVID-19’s impact on shifting geopolitics in the Asia-Pacific, as well as the future of our organisation’s work as a regional space-maker for discussions on video for change, open technology, and digital rights.
On the pilot episode of Pretty Good Podcast: Discussions on Digital Rights, EngageMedia chats with the Association for Progressive Communications executive director, Chat Garcia Ramilo, on the past, present, and future of digital rights in Asia-Pacific region. The pilot also tackles how the COVID-19 pandemic relates to digital rights and the importance of building and staying in touch with our communities to further the digital rights movement in the region.
