makido Film Vienna offers exciting internships to the two winners!
Who is makido? Makido stands for MArboe, KIno(German for cinema), and DOcumentary, but also alludes to the game Mikado, highlighting the playful nature with which we want to approach complex topics and that we want to treat our protagonists with particular care and sensitivity.
As traditional, value-determining groups, like political parties, churches but also families “in the conventional sense” lose their impact and significance in our society, what is shown on TV and in cinemas becomes increasingly important. It puts a special responsibility on those who produce films.
What is the focus of Time for Africa! ?
What comes to mind when you think of Africa? Images of poor starving people falling victim to natural disasters and corrupt politicians? The dominant images portrayed in the media serve only to enhance these stereotypical views.
And how are Europeans perceived in Africa? Aren’t they all well off with enough jobs for everyone?
Makido aims to challenge these stereotypes by telling nuanced and exciting stories about people living on the two continents.
"Rather than condemn or endorse the undoubted power of the media, we need to accept their significant impact and penetration throughout the world as an established fact, and also appreciate their importance as an element of culture in today’s world. The role of communication and media in the process of development should not be underestimated, nor the function of media as instruments for the citizen’s active participation in society..."
UNESCO declaration issued on 22 January 1982 at the International Symposium on Media Education in Grunwald, Germany
