Owning Our Future-Haitian Perspectives in Film
Ten Haitian-made fims that provide a unique opportunity to experience Haiti as it is lived by street vendors, business women, artists, farmers and more. Their stories, focusing on the economic and social development challenges faced by Haitians, nourish an understanding of Haiti that goes beyond its man-made and natural disasters.

Building Local Capacity – Giving Voice to Haitians
In the fall of 2014, Community Supported Film in collaboration with Groupe Medialternatif conducted an intensive 5-week documentary filmmaking training. Ten Haitians, with storytelling experience in print, radio, photo or TV journalism, theater, and ction writing, were selected from 83 applicants. Most had no previous experience with filmmaking. After three weeks of rigorous exercises, each student researched and produced a lived-reality documentary short. The resulting lms are gathered in this collection. Let us know what you think at www.csfilm.org.

Produced by Community Supported Film and Groupe Medialternatif
Community Supported Film, Boston, USA,  strengthens the documentary storytelling capacity in countries where the dissemination of objective and accurate information is essential for effective development and conflict resolution.

Groupe Medialternatif, Port-au-Prince, Haiti,  produces independent media, creates media spaces and alternative means of communication, promotes exchanges on journalism and communication and provides media production services.

We looked at the portrayal of immigrant characters on 79 scripted television shows that aired between July 2020 and June 2022 and surveyed viewers on how four immigration storylines shaped their attitudes toward immigrants in the real world.

The findings? Immigrant representation on television has shifted in important ways — both positive and negative — since 2020.
