After a decade of short films and big issues, Media That Matters
continues to inspire and impact people across the globe. The tenth
annual collection will feature twelve new films—each under twelve
minutes—that will inspire audiences to screen, act, impact. Energy and
consumption, immigration issues, transgender youth identity, deep-seated
racial prejudice in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, detainee accounts
of their imprisonment at Guantanamo Bay and the human right to health
care are just a few of the topics that are covered in this year’s
collection. But Media That Matters is more than just a film festival.
