The third annual Media That Matters Film Festival is now online and all the films are available for view. The Festival, "celebrates films, videos, and new media that inspire people to speak out and take action for social change." I had the honor of serving on the jury for this year's Festival and it was a pleasure to view all the films.
The ones that have been selected are really amazing and eye-opening works of art, and I highly recommend you take the time to not only view them, but to do something about the issues that move you. The Festival site makes it easy for you by highlighting actions you can take related to the films you're viewing (e.g. send a letter to congress, donate to organizations, etc.)
The Festival will be online for the next year and will also be traveling around the US to various cities, beginning this weekend with an installation at the Walter Reade Theatre at NYC's Lincoln Center from June 13 – 15. Enjoy the films and be sure to check out one called "Vision Test" which was awared the Jury Award.
