MakeMedia Film Festival

         Enjoy a film under the stars on Thursday 25th July, with popcorn and drinks! The movies made by MakeMedia producers will be shown starting at 19:30.

MakeMedia 2012 was a call for people across the island to create short audio and video productions from their own level of skills. This provided an opportunity for a wide range of people to connect with CCMC and its mandate of amplifying the voice of all communities of Cyprus. Each production contributes to greater understanding of the communities of Cyprus, and includes the cross-cutting theme of peaceful coexistence and/or reconciliation. 

So come to support the films and the media makers :)

Panel Discussion with Turkish Cypriot Association of Journalists

CCMC and Turkish Cypriot Association of Journalists organise a panel discussion on “Community, Social and Mainstream: The changing nature of media in the Turkish Cypriot Community”, Tuesday 16 July 2013, at 20.00, at the Premises of Turkish Cypriot Association of Journalists in Nicosia.

As the emergence of social media as an alternative source of information, mainstream media has been challenged in regards to its ability to report on a fast pace and reliability of the information given. Indeed, the term ‘journalist’ is now a far more fluid concept, as mainstream journalists have now been joined by citizen journalists as well as professionals from the community media profession. But how can they all co-exist, and more importantly work together for the greatest social benefit within the current media landscape?

The panel speakers, Ulas Baris , Osman Kalfaoglu and Serkan Soyalan, are young and prominent journalists from the TCC, who, at the same time are very successful in aligning their reporting with social media and aligning the two platforms in order to create a more fast, but in the same time reliable information flow to the society.
