FILM AND FACTUAL MEDIA AGAINST EXTREMISM
The primary objective of the project is the use of factual media and documentary film screenings in order to encourage civil activism in raising awareness and strengthen the community’s immunity to violent extremism.
The project will also use documentary film and social media to train at least 12 young people to produce a series of human-interest video documentaries focused on youth affected by extremism through social media.
Trained journalists will be providing training on storytelling, whereas DokuFest will be providing training on use of camera, audio recording and postproduction to produce at least 24 engaging short stories. All of these stories will be then compiled into an awareness video package distributed through TV broadcast nationally as well as through social media outlets.
This project is financed through Engagement for Equity Program – E4E funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Advocacy Training and Resource Center (ATRC)
