Third World Newsreel
Third World Newsreel (TWN) is an alternative media arts organization that
fosters the creation, appreciation and dissemination of independent film and
video by and about people of color and social justice issues.
IIt supports the innovative work of diverse forms and genres made by artists who
are intimately connected to their subjects through common bonds of
ethnic/cultural heritage, class position, gender, sexual orientation and
political identification. TWN promotes the self-representation of traditionally
marginalized groups as well as the negotiated representation of those groups by
artists who work in solidarity with them.
Ultimately, whether documentary, experimental, narrative, traditional or
non-traditional, the importance of the media promoted by the organization is its
ability to effect social change, to encourage people to think critically about
their lives and the lives of others, and to propel people into action.
