UNESCO Audiovisual E-Platform renewed

12-08-2009 (Paris)
UNESCO Audiovisual E-Platform renewed
The UNESCO Audiovisual E-Platform has been redesigned and improved to include new and more dynamic functionalities, and to increase the number of audiovisual productions from all regions of the world.
The new functionalities offer the possibility to categorise productions in different themes, such as women, children, sustainable development, minorities, indigenous communities and environmental issues. Individuals and organizations are now also able to create and manage their online catalogues of audiovisual productions. Trailers or complete productions can be screened online, and the navigation experience and available resources have been improved. The next step is to strengthen linkages between the Platform and independent producers’ networks globally, and to include rights-free content from other United Nations agencies.

The Audiovisual E-Platform is a project started by UNESCO in 2004, with the overall aim to support international exchange of audiovisual content relating to development issues and to promote audiovisual production as a tool for cultural expression. The Platform also facilitates business-to-business exchanges among professionals in the audiovisual field. If you are an independent producer of content, broadcaster, director, producer or film festival organizer you will find this Audiovisual E-Platform useful.

The Platform now compiles over 600 productions from more than 80 countries and has close to 5,000 registered users.

The project is executed through a partnership of the Government of Spain and the UNESCO Association of Igualada.
