Independent video makers from all over Europe contribute short video clips to a production team which puts them together to form a monthly video program of half an hour.
This video magazine will be subtitled in as many European languages as possible, distributed in the countries involved and screened locally.
The production group puts together the monthly editions but does not change the single 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 will be 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.
How can you get a video to screen it ?
In several countries there are already groups which are subtitling and distributing the NewsReal, you can get a VHS copy of the monthly European NewsReal from them for around 5 euro.
In England the distribution is done by Beyond TV
