Cinewax is looking for volunteer writers and content creators
Cinewax is looking for volunteers for its new collaborative media dedicated to African cinema and new talent!
Launched in 2015, the Cinewax association aims to increase the visibility of films and artists from the continent and diasporas. In addition to the exhibition of films in partnership with cinemas, last year we launched the Online African Film Festival (OAFF), the first online African film festival.
Articles, interviews, surveys, videos...We want to make African cinema even more attractive and exciting by using a variety of formats!
We are a team of passionate volunteers, most of whom are in the Paris region. But we work remotely.
For the writing, we are looking for volunteer writers and community managers.
For the video part, we are looking for volunteer editors, sound engineers, photographers, and cameramen who can accompany us.
WHY A MEDIA PLATFORM?
Images have a real impact on our vision of the world and our relationship with others.
Our audience needs to be represented on the screen and to see authentic stories.
Movies are more than just stories. They say who we are, what we want, and how we see our world. They help us to have a critical look at our society, and to build our identity.
- We believe it is urgent to show the world the richness of African creativity and to allow everyone to have access to positive and critical images from the African continent.
- We accept difference. We all carry within us a hybrid culture, a history, and identities as varied as they are enriching, paths that deserve to be told.
- We defend "made in Africa" as a symbol of authenticity and a unique point of view on our reality.
- We carry the voices of thousands of African and afro artists and creatives, from around the world, who want to share their vision. These voices are not heard today.
- We are exploring a new generation of talent and the newest trends in the African film industry, along with others.
- We are looking for motivated and free-spirited writers, who can defend their ideas and have a perspective on the world.
