outreach and impact
The power of long format documentaries lies in the ability to immerse audiences fully with the characters and topics in the film, enabling more compassion and empathy to grow, leading an audience to engage and therefore act as a result of watching the film.
The outreach campaign for Lost in Lebanon aims to use the film to connect people working with advocacy, development, politics, human rights and the wider public in general to rebuild and re-examine human and cultural values with the desire to create a more fair, compassionate and sustainable society.
The campaign will use the evidence and recommendations collected, to build a social movement addressing the devastating impact of conflict and how to ensure a successful future for displaced people, highlighting:
The immediate need for safe passage from conflict affected areas;
The immediate need for a safe and legal place to live in a second or third country;
The importance of the right to work;
The importance or access to adequate education for refugee youth;
The importance of providing support to young men of late teenage years to avoid creating future fighters;
The importance of a shared history in creating an atmosphere for peaceful coexistence.
