About Us!

October 13, 2009 Leave a comment

Magic Lantern Foundation is a non-profit group working with media and human rights. Established in 1989, MLF has been involved with:

* Production of documentary films that explore aesthetics and politics.
* Campaigning with films on issues of social justice, culture and censorship.
* Media education to critically assess the dominant media.
* Training in the use of media and media education.
* Intervening in the construction of media policy.
* Dissemination of independent films.
* Research on IPR in the realm of knowledge and culture production.
* Curation and organisation of film festivals.

After several years of making films and screening them to a wide range of audience – from film festivals, local, national and global, to informal screenings with students and activist groups, to those among rural communities and people’s movements – MLF has increasingly felt a wide gap that exists between films and their audience and felt the need to make proactive interventions to bridge the gap. So, since 2004, MLF has organised a series of film festivals on its own and has encouraged student and civil society groups to do similar projects in their local areas.
