The ENR is a not-for-profit network from independent video makers and screeners.The ENR is a regular video magazine, which is subtitled in as many languages as possible, distributed and locally screened.
How does the European NewsReal work ?
Independent video makers from all over Europe contribute short video clips to a production team which puts them together to form a regular video program of half an hour. The producer of the ENR changes every one or 2 editions.
This video magazine is subtitled in as many European languages as possible, distributed in the countries involved and screened locally. 18 editions were produced in the first three years of production.
The production group puts together the regular editions but does not change the individual contributions.
The European Newsreal is an independent media network of regional production and screening groups for the European wide distribution of copy-left videos covering issues ignored or distorted by the corporate media.
The European Newsreal is a platform to promote and empower groups and campaigns working towards positive social change, a world without repressive borders, exclusion and exploitation of human beings and our environment.
