ChangeChitra Film Festival - Documentary films for activism
February 29, 2020 2:00 pm Saturday
ChangeChitra is a yearlong mentoring program in which 60 young novice filmmakers produced 16 high-quality documentary films on social issues. Participants in this immersive program were provided professional equipment and learned filmmaking and editing techniques at three residential workshops of six days each and worked in teams to research, ideate and produce compelling short documentaries, that explored India’s myriad challenges and successes from new angles and revealed untold stories.
ChangeChitra is supported by the US Embassy New Delhi. The program is being implemented by Video Volunteers, an international media and human rights organization. Video Volunteers promotes community media to enable citizens to take action on critical issues and is one of the world’s largest alternative media platforms. VV’s training partner for the implementation of ChangeChitra is the MY HERO Project of California, which uses media, art, and technology to celebrate the best of humanity, one story at a time.
