Multilingual films as digital rights teaching aids for activism in Asia-Pacific

Zoom Room 5B

With over 60% of the world's population and a thriving internet user community, the complex geopolitics of Asia-Pacific demands an active discourse of digital rights and digital security. However, the actual conversations are extremely skewed because of the lack of resources in different languages. Media and other communications resources are critical to effective campaigning, education and awareness raising for social activism. We are currently in the process of using the learning and practices — of films being used as digital activism tools in the past — and collaborate with regional film-makers to take such practices to the next level. In this session, we will discuss how films can be effective teaching and training catalysts to boost digital rights and digital security activism in the region by sharing bespoke ideas, approaches and emerging processes designed for two of the prominent stakeholders — civil society and academic institutions.
