Media That Matters 2010 seeks to inspire global 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. Media That Matters – which is presented by Arts Engine – also offers Take Action Links on their website which provide important resources on how to galvanize action on the social issues covered in the films, which are also available online, as well screened in classrooms, communities, and locations around the world.

The NYC World Premiere of the tenth annual Media That Matters collection, is Wednesday, June 2, 2010.

The event begins at 6:00 pm with an impACT salon featuring some of this year’s presenting partners for Take Action opportunities and a chance to meet the festival filmmakers. Then screening of tenth annual Media That Matters collection runs from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

The event takes place at The School of Visual Arts (SVA) Visual Arts Theatre, located at 333 West 23rd Street, in New York City, New York.
