SIGNIS TV Seminar 2015 will focus on audiences

aparecida_04

The SIGNIS TV Seminar 2015 that will take place in Aparecida, Brazil, from 22 to 25 August 2015 will address the theme “Knowing Your Audience: Connecting to the Periphery.”

The theme echoes the invitation that Pope Francis presented to the Church to be as “a field hospital after battle” reaching out to the people who are on the margins of society, and tackles the challenging issue, for TV broadcasters and producers, of knowing and understanding the audiences and the changes that they are going through in this interconnected world.

PLURAL+ 2014: SIGNIS Prize goes to “Somewhere to Belong”



The SIGNIS Jury at the PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival 2014 has decided to give its prize to {Somewhere to Belong} by Julia Kuhn (Germany).}}
“Through the use of black & white photography and a variety of warm colors, -says the SIGNIS Jury citation- the video shows how exclusion can lead to sadness. {{ {Somewhere to Belong} }} reminds us we are all equal, whatever our origins or our skin color”. The Jury highlighted that “the video is also a hymn to friendship: hanging with another, with friends, makes differences nonexistent. This video teaches us that immigrants give us a chance to encounter people from another culture with a lot in common with us: we all are human, we all are equal”.

Jeanne de Lestonnac: To Do or to Die



With script, cinematography and direction of Pablo Zubizarreta the documentary presents the life of Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac and the work that The Company of Mary Our Lady does in the field of education.
The film is structured around the theatre piece “Breath on the Embers”, by David Kenzie, about the life of the saint born in Bordeaux performed by the students of the Notre Dame School Cobham (United Kingdom). The sisters, with their own voice, describe the work they do in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Japan, France, Spain, Egypt and Colombia.
The intimate narration by the sisters, the powerful images caught by the camera and the music of Philip Glass come together in a production that manages to make relevant to contemporary audiences the life and charisma of the founder of the first female religious congregation consecrated to education.

The Ramparts of Warsaw 1943-44

remparts_de_varsovie

1st August 1944. Nearly two months after the Allies land in Normandy, the young people of Poland rise up in Warsaw to free themselves from the Nazi yoke. Betrayed by Stalin who is encamped, weapons at hand, on the far bank of the Vistula the Polish Resistance one of the strongest in Europe with its Home Army the Armia Krajowa faces the world’s most powerful army alone.
In this battle for freedom, the whole of civilian and military society, scouting and youth movements, priests and religious people would face up to the German army, compensating for their serious lack of resources with ingenuity, bravery and courage.
Three young Europeans, Alexandra (France), Maria (Poland) and Roman (Germany), meet in Warsaw to enquire into these events; here they meet witnesses who took part in the Warsaw Uprising or lived in the ghetto. Beneath their white hair we can recognise the men and women who formed the living ramparts of freedom in the face of Nazism. This fierce armed, civil, intellectual and moral resistance will leave its mark on the collective Polish conscience and will later influence the form of resistance that the Poles will introduce in the face of Soviet communism. “We must fight, fight in every way we can, but find another way of doing it. No more bloodbaths!” said the leaders of the Warsaw Uprising in their testament.
A film by ANDRE BOSSUROY (60 min, 2014) with the support from the European Commission, available in 8 languages (free of charge): EN, FR, DE, PL, ES, IT, ND, CZ

SAT-7 Inaugurates New TV Studios in Lebanon

sat7_newstudio

Under the patronage of His Eminence Cardinal Bechara Boutros Al-Raii, the Patriarch of the Maronite Church, deputies from the Lebanese Parliament, Government and military officials, Church leaders from different denominations, SAT-7 international partners and staff celebrated the opening of a brand new, multi-studio for SAT-7 Lebanon.
The new building, a few hundred meters away from SAT-7’s existing rented and over-crowed facility, has three studio spaces with a total area of almost 1,000 square meters. SAT-7 Lebanon was established in 1996 and was the network's first production center. Initially, the facility had only 100 square meters of studio space.
“At that time I wondered how we would use all the space but it was not long before we needed to rent more space in the same building, and  then in other studios around the city. 18 years ago we were broadcasting only two hours per week. Today, SAT-7 is broadcasting over 800 hours a week, in three languages on five different channels”, pointed out founder and CEO Terence Ascott in his opening speech.
“And now as we move into this beautiful new facility, I am again asking: What will we do with all this space? However, from experience, I am sure that it will all be well utilized in a fairly short time.”
Terence Ascott also acknowledged that the new building is not just a building. He is sure it will be used to advance the Vision and Mission of SAT-7.
“Our Mission is ‘To provide the churches and Christians of the Middle East and North Africa an opportunity to witness to Jesus Christ through inspirational, informative and educational television services’. As we do this we are especially reaching the children of the region – providing them with positive role-models and helping build character in young lives from Casablanca to Baghdad. Research has shown that almost 10 million under 16 year-olds watch the SAT-7 KIDS channel on a regular basis and these are the Arab World of tomorrow – our best hope to see positive change in this region.”
