One of the participating filmmakers from EngageMedia’s Video For Change Environmental Impact Lab has just released a mobile journalism film about the stories of communities grappling with a catastrophic natural phenomenon frequently occurring in Mongolia.
At the second Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab, EngageMedia continues to work with six amazing film projects contributing to environmental justice in the Asia-Pacific. This time around, the focus of the Impact Lab was on maximising the participating films’ potential for creating impact in their communities.
Following the success of the first Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab, EngageMedia is excited to begin the final round of the Impact Lab with six new filmmakers, video collectives, and campaigners using film to tackle environmental issues and eager to explore how to maximise their respective film’s potential for social impact.
As co-editors of the Video for Change Impact Toolkit and, more recently, convenors of the Environmental Impact Lab, EngageMedia is often asked questions about how films can create social impact. In this video, the three seasoned mentors of the Impact Lab explain what impact production is, and why it is important for filmmakers and video collectives to integrate impact campaigns into the film production process.
EngageMedia interviews Impact Strategist Lina Srivastava on the importance of impact production for filmmakers and video collectives, and how it should not just be an afterthought in the process. Highlights of this interview can also be found in the video, What is Impact Production?, on Cinemata.
After three months of inspiring workshops, training, and masterclasses on impact production, EngageMedia’s first Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab has officially come to an end. Under the mentorship of three experienced impact producers and guest speakers, four video initiatives completed the Impact Lab with more impact production skills and knowledge to advance the impact campaigns of their video initiatives.
The Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab is back for its second edition (and an extended deadline)! EngageMedia is once again calling on Asia-Pacific filmmakers documenting environmental issues to apply to the Environmental Impact Lab, which seeks to strengthen the capacity of filmmakers to create impact with their work.
EngageMedia kicked off the first session of its Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab, a series of masterclasses on impact production for Asia-Pacific filmmakers working on environmental video initiatives.
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.
