In collaboration with friends at Arts Engine, Creative Commons, and Intelligent Television, I was interviewed for a case study about filmmakers and Creative Commons licensing â€” scroll down to watch or download the video.
Arts Engine is the organization behind the Media that Matters Film Festival; an annual showcase of twelve short films that address some of the most pressing social issues of the day. This unique festival distributes its festival DVD with a Creative Commons license (BY-NC-ND). Participating filmmakers are obligated to choose open distribution and licensing, which is great because they’re exposed to concepts that might otherwise cross their cultural radar.
Furthermore, the ninth annual Media that Matters Film Festival is now accepting submissions of short pieces on social issues from all comers (finalists are awarded $1000 each). Hurry though, the deadline is January 9th!
Finally, Media that Matters is also distributed on Miro. You can subscribe with 1-click.
