Technology And Film For Social Change
One World Social Media Competition aims to bring together the best examples of how NGOs, local initiatives, government initiatives and activists -- to name a few -- are using technology, social media and mobile communication to make a real positive impact .The goal is to draw attention to inspiring, innovative and successful solutions enabled by increased access to technology and new communication tools.
One World Social Media Competition is a part of the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival taking place in March 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic. New Media for Social Change is a new program area of the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. It aims to further develop the festival’s basic mission, which is to relay information on breaches of human rights and to acquaint viewers with extraordinary life stories, which are often overlooked by media news services.
