"Exposing the Invisible" Screening at CCMC

CCMC cordially invites you to attend the first screening in Cyprus of the acclaimed documentary "Exposing the Invisible" on 17 December 2014 at 6:30pm.

Attendance is open to the public and it is free of charge. "Exposing the Invisible" is comprised by 3-part series of short films examining some of the most inspiring and provocative investigative cases, those that go further than traditional journalistic investigations.

In the documentary, hackers, activists and investigators from the UK, to Lebanon, Israel and Pakistan to find how they work with evidence, data and visualisation.

After introducing and screening the documentary, we will discuss about the tools and tactics used by the protagonists to expose the hidden layers behind problems in their societies. We will then reflect and brainstorm how do these apply in Cyprus and what strategies could media, community media and potentially any Citizen-journalist use.

WANTED: Cyprus Peace Process Photos

Within the framework of the "Where are the Women?: Capturing the Gender Dividend in Cyprus for Peace and Beyond" project, the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC) is organising a photography exhibition this coming September that seeks to raise awareness on the representation – or the lack of – women in the Cyprus peace process.

CCMC is looking to source photographs of different aspects of the peace and reconciliation processes as seen through the eyes of Greek Cypriot, Turkish Cypriot and international journalists and photojournalists. In particular, CCMC invites submissions that capture:

-       Official Cyprus Problem Talks & Negotiation Teams

-       Technical Committees & Working Groups

-       Peacebuilding & Civil Society activities

-       Missing Persons/Families 

With the permission of the photographers themselves, CCMC will modify the photos with graphics posing poignant questions and sending out positive messages for a more participatory reconciliation process with the active involvement of women. The "Where are the Women?" project, funded by the US State Department, aims to get more women substantively involved and participating in the Cyprus peace building and reconciliation processes at the grass-roots level.

For more information, and to send in your photos, please contact Hazal Yolga or Giorgos Andriotis on +357-22-662269 or email or
