The Media That Matters Film Festival is the premiere showcase for short films on the most important topics of the day. Local and global, online and in communities around the world, Media That Matters engages diverse audiences and inspires them to take action. After a decade of short films and big issues, Media That Matters continues to inspire and impact people across the globe. The tenth annual festival will feature twelve new films – each under twelve minutes – that will inspire audiences to screen, act, impact.
Transgender youth identity, deep-seated racial prejudice in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, detainee accounts of their imprisonment at Guantanamo Bay and the human right to health care are just a few of the topics that are covered in this year’s collection. But Media That Matters is more than just a film festival. Come to MBC on Wednesday, June 16th to find out.
“We no longer have to rely on major corporations for things to be seen – we have Media that Matters to distribute new material and new voices and new points of view.” – Tim Robbins, Actor
The films will be followed by Q&A with Phonograph Films Director Juan Carlos Zaldivar.
