Kino Kabaret Geneva, Switzerland
From 13 – 26 January, 2018 I participated in the Kino Kabaret in Geneva, Switzerland. The Kino Kabaret is a movement where filmmakers, actors/ comedians, camera and sound operators, musicians, décor makers  and make over specialists come together to jointly make short films. I had the opportunity to work on 2 four minute films and 2 short one minute films.  On the final day I produced with Robin Derek and Olivier Guibert a short film for the campaign ‘Dit non a no billag’.  This campaign discusses if the Swiss population should vote ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ in the upcoming referendum in early March for continuing or stopping the fee Swiss people monthly pay for the public television and the cultural sector. This short one minute movie is a parodie on how some powerful forces might influence the referendum.  Watch;

We are using video in our M & E system!

Simon started working with us to train grantees in participatory video. Amazingly, with the first training week participants produced 5 stakeholder videos of 5 minutes each, and had shared these in support of community dialogue about basic service improvements. We were all impressed with the empowering effect of participatory video. With Simon's recommendations, we have started using the video content in our M & E system (behavior change and service improvement results).
