Last year 2011 Slum Cinema Headquaters in Amsterdam lost all funding due to political changes in the Netherlands. The Headoffice cannot support anymore local projects with money and human resource support. But we stay alive in an online way.
This new Slum Cinema website is launched to create a world wide community of slum cinema initiatives in countries worldwide. Any group in countries where young people create and can show slum cinema alike multi media activities can participate. You form an organised chapter of at least 2-3 active members and apply for international membership. If the activity is simular to other Slum Cinema activities we can give you a special country/chapter section on our site as a portfolio of your activities, projects and plans.
For membership it is important to show regular local activities in slums and deprived areas. You and your group have projects and projectplans for the future and you organise yourself properly. Our network can help you to develop further and being part of the community exchange of knowledge, content and anything else what is possibel.
Having your own Chapter section you can upload articles, photography and video's and show it to the international Slum Cinema community and audience. With a few hundred thousands of unique views yearly it is an interesting and growing channel.
