The point of departure of the It’s Good to Know documentary is concentrating on three axes: the right of access to information; peace journalism; media ethics and the role of media, community media and an active media literate community

It’s Good to Know documentary is concentrating on three axes:

  • the right of access to information (“Right to Know”), which explores the status of this fundamental human right in Cyprus, from the media and the community/civil society/(active) citizenship perspectives.
  • peace journalism, showing the PJ work done in Cyprus, and how it relates to issues of missing persons, human rights, migration and discrimination, all related to media practices. A
  • media ethics and the role of media, community media and an active media literate community. The context of this documentary is heavily shaped by Cyprus’ political-historical setting, yet, it also interacts with international dimensions (which brings in a local-global perspective).

The Join2Media documentary was produced with the support of the community: dozens of actors from diverse capacities and backgrounds have come together to contribute with their perspectives during interviews, on the three axes; from mainstream media, community and alternative media, journalists, editors, community media producers, bloggers, academics, activists, CSO representatives, video-graphic artists who come from both sides of the dividing line of Cyprus.
