In a world in which technology seems an extension of ourselves, where is cultural competency in all of this?
This past June at the 7th Annual New Media Film Festival we sought to address cultural competency through our programming and shed light on overcoming differences through the use of new media.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be spotlighting several entries from our festival that encouraged and addressed the cultural divide using the latest in digital content. A focus of the New Media Film Festival is to explore religious traditions, ethnic backgrounds and cultural nuances.
Several of these films show how individuals, families, and societies smartly recognize the differences among them and are proactively working to build on their new found similarities.
Not only will these stories share insight into a world different than most of us are used to, they will provide a sneak peek in the type of programming in store for next year’s 8th Annual New Media Festival.
So be sure to check back next week to see what film’s were showing.
