Participatory videos for NGOs and volunteers in Italy

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, 30 July 2008
During 2007, Kinè ran a “Show! Your Story” workshop on audiovisual communication for national associations working in international solidarity and cooperation. Trained by Italian filmmakers and producers, the participants learned how to think about their subjects from a cinematic perspective and translate their stories into videos, documentaries and audiovisuals for social development.
The results – three short documentaries – have been shown widely, with the “actors” appearing at presentations in person. This social documentary and participatory video approach has been used to get social workers, volunteers and non-profit organisations involved in productions and projects by providing them with support and training.
Kinè also acts as a production company and communications advisor for NGOs and local institutions.
