Haiti’s Groupe Medialternatif (GMA, Alternative Media Group) has joined CSFilm to implement the Haitian Perspectives in Film project. Participation of local community media partners like GMA assure that CSFilm’s efforts are informed by local knowledge and experience, integrated into the existing Haitian media-making environment, therefore locally owned and better positioned for sustainable impact. GMA will coordinate Haitian distribution of the films while CSFilm concentrates on international usage.
GMA is the leading independent media group in Haiti. Its mission is to foster a safe space for communication and information as part of an alternative vision based on respect for human rights and ethical rules governing the journalist profession.
The priority of Groupe Medialternatif is to provide information on political, economic, social and cultural processes and to involve members of social movements, human rights groups, development agencies, research institutions, etc.
