MacLeod, K. (2022). The Pacific Community Filmmaking Consortium: producing pacific community-based films by Pacific filmmakers. Media Practice and Education, 23(2), 195-201.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

The Pacific Community Filmmaking Consortium represents a significant leap forward in how stories from the Pacific are told and heard. By empowering local filmmakers🎬, the consortium is nurturing the region’s cultural heritage and addressing critical issues like gender inequality and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative is crucial because it provides a platform for authentic Pacific voices🌊to be amplified, ensuring that external interpretations do not overshadow their narratives 📣. 

The films produced are more than just entertainment; they are potent tools for education and advocacy, capable of reaching a global audience and influencing policy. The consortium’s approach is particularly impactful as it fosters sustainability in practice and development🌴, reflecting broader concerns of the region. It’s a model that could be replicated in other contexts, promoting a more inclusive and participatory media landscape. This is more than filmmaking; it’s about creating waves of change that resonate from the Pacific to the rest of the world🌏.

🌊IMSPARK: Rising Above the Tide: How Pacific Islanders are Adapting to Climate Change🌊

🌊Imagine... Rising Above the Tide: How Pacific Islanders are Adapting to Climate Change🌊

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

Imagine a future where Pacific islanders are not only resilient to the impacts of climate change, but also leading the way in finding innovative and sustainable solutions. A future where Pacific cultures, traditions, and values are preserved and celebrated, and where Pacific voices are heard and respected in the global arena.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

Climate change is an existential threat for many Pacific islanders, who face rising sea levels, saltwater intrusion, coral bleaching, coastal erosion, extreme weather events, and loss of biodiversity. 🌏These impacts not only affect their livelihoods, health, and food security, but also their identity, culture, and sovereignty. 🌿However, Pacific islanders are not passive victims of climate change, but active agents of change. They are adapting to the changing environment by using traditional knowledge, local resources, and community networks, as well as embracing new technologies, partnerships, and policies.🕊 They are also advocating for more ambitious and urgent climate action from the international community, and sharing their stories and experiences with the world.
