Armed with mobile phones and cameras, thousands of citizens record events as they occur in front of them, wrong-footing censorship, and empowering the voice of those with a street-level perspective. In the wake of president Hosni Mubarak’s fall, a group of film-makers and activists founded the non-profit media collective Mosireen to film the ongoing revolution, to publish videos that challenge state media narratives, to provide training, technical support and equipment, to organise screenings and events, as well as host an extensive library of footage from the revolution.
Support citizen media of all kinds.
Mosireen runs free training courses. Their videos are available to download or stream for free and openly for all non-commercial viewing, screening, and distribution.
