More than just movies, Sunshine Cinema events respond to local challenges with appropriate film and workshop content. Our team facilitates practical making workshops, inspirational networking events or engaging dialogues that address today’s most wicked barriers to sustainable development and community prosperity.
In partnership with MLT Drives, Sunshine Cinema is able to provide a steady supply of power regardless of the state of energy supply from the national power grid. This package gives event-organizers an efficient, solar-powered solution to popup cinema, ensuring that audiences remain blissfully unaware of power outages as your events continue, uninterrupted, as planned.
Historically the use of mobile cinemas on the African continent have been used as tools by Colonial governments to communicate their agendas. This problematic tradition is one that Sunshine Cinema seeks to address. Many African stories do not get shared with the local audiences that they are about. Yet such stories can offer the tools to build and inspire platforms of community exchange and innovation.
In light of this, as filmmakers, photographers, and designers, we are inspired by local innovators and change-makers. We aim to share their stories with a wider audience through a collaborative approach. With a keen interest in African innovation, Sunshine Cinema identifies local community change-makers and documents their stories of innovation, working together on producing the content, and the post screening facilitated workshops. Our approach is guided by human-centered anthropological research methods, to ensure that communities are active participants in the preparation and planning of such events.
In the future, we aim to build an online platform for local change-makers to share and access relevant content, through partnering with advancing media technologies, promoting an online database of stories of social change and innovation.
