Now, with their CITIZENShift online project, they are furthering their dedication to citizen engagement and social change. Point your browser to www.citizen.nfb.ca for unique content from active citizens, independent filmmakers and multimedia artists. (Full disclosure: Some of my work appears there.) This participatory social media Web platform explores today's crucial issues through films, photography, articles, blogs and podcasts. CitizenShift is inspired by Challenge for Change, a 1960s experimental NFB ini- tiative that involved com- munities in the documentary filmmaking process. Topics covered include Arts & Mu- sic, Economy & Labor, Edu- cation, Environment, Gen- der, Health, Human Rights, Immigration, Media, Politics, Poverty, Racial Justice, Reli- gion & Spirituality, War & Peace and Youth.
