Fostering local video-journalists and documentarians

November 27, 2023

Strengthening local news and information is Community Supported Film’s mission. If the public’s understanding of local, regional, and international issues is weak, misinformed or biased by external interests, the fragile ties of society are undermined leading to a lack of accountability, instability, and authoritarianism.

Our goal is to strengthen the skills of local activists, storytellers and journalists in video-journalism and documentary and to use the stories they produce to stimulate dialogue. We’ve worked with Afghans, Haitians and with new immigrants and refugees in the United States on three training and public engagement campaigns.

Now we want to allow people to access our training and engagement model with much more flexibility and independence. To do this we are hard at work producing a comprehensive online asynchronous training. This three-year project will result in over 70 video tutorials, guides, and exercises. This free resource will effectively and efficiently foster local video-journalists and documentarians. For more information about this unique initiative, please read our proposal.

We need to raise $20,000 by the end of the year to meet our production goals. Can you help? No donation is too small or too large!

Thank you and best wishes for the holidays,

What was emphasized during the discussion is that it is up to those that believe in the US as a nation of immigrants, to counter the lies and misinformation that is permeating the current dialogue about new immigrants and refugees in the US. It is incumbent on all of us to speak out against xenophobia and hatred toward the newest members of our communities.
