What is the purpose of your mediamaking? Is it just to entertain? Or is it to tell stories that impact audiences positively? What is your intent?

Our intent is to change the world, one story at a time. In a digital world, that story can be told in many ways. We recognize digital content/media arts as a powerful weapon of choice for making social and positive change. Our mission is to empower youth and adults through creativity and technology. We also provide a venue for independent filmmakers and content creators to showcase their work, compete for industry recognition, awards and prizes, as well as learn from industry experts.
