EngageMedia: Website for video about social justice and environmental issues

EngageMedia is a video sharing site focusing on social justice and environmental issues in South East Asia, Australia and the Pacific. It is a space for critical documentary, fiction, artistic and experimental works that challenge the dominance of the mainstream media.

The growth of digital distribution tools mean distributing video online has become a viable option for artists and activists looking for ways to get their work out there. Huge potential exists within these new technologies to bypass the control of big media conglomerates and create our own distribution channels.

EngageMedia aims to demystify and provide access to these new technologies, create an online archive of independent video productions using open content licenses and form a peer network of video makers, educators and screening organisations.

Our core aims are

  • To assist individuals and groups producing thought-provoking and informative media focused on social and environmental issues distribute their work.
  • To develop the digital media and Internet skills of independent video makers and marginalised communities.
  • To foster a regional network of producers, to assist each other in producing and distributing their work in the South East Asia and Pacific region.
  • To produce an online video delivery platform under a free software license that others are free to use and modify for their own media projects.
