IMPACT, LEARNING & DISTRIBUTION
We seek to bring thought-provoking human stories to diverse audiences and to inspire positive change.
That belief is evident in what we do. It is also echoed in how we do it.
In the summer of 2017, we were joined by Dr Ellie Smith, an international human rights lawyer with over 20 years of experience of working with victims of war crimes and mass atrocities. Ellie is our Director of Research & Impact working across our slate of projects.
The aim of our collaborative 'Impact Research' project is to enable a thorough exploration of the various ways in which journalistic and filmmaking communities worldwide engage with victims of gross human rights violations, and the potential effects of that engagement on the journalists themselves, their working practices, the survivors, and the resulting film or written piece.
As part of this project we will be issuing a series of briefings that seek to provide guidance to people working with survivors of human rights violations.
Getting the Story is the first in this series and is available here. Please share - and if you have comments or feedback we'd love to hear from you.
RADIO FILM IMPACT BRIEFING
Before there was Radio Film, there was ScreenStation - and ScreenStation continues to exist alongside our production activities as a unique forum for cross-cultural collaboration.
ScreenStation is a collective organisation, founded in 2000 with the aim of promoting African and world cinema. Almost 20 years later, we continue to further that aim, primarily through our monthly event Mwalimu Express at it's current home of Rich Mix on Bethnal Green Road in London. Mwalimu is London's longest running family friendly event, featuring live music, DJs Rita Ray and Max Reinhardt and a film programme including features, shorts and documentaries from all over Africa.
ScreenStation is also a network of artists, activists and agencies with whom we have worked over the years on campaigns, events, projects and in education.
