My People, Our Stories

My People, Our Stories was born in 2017 as a collaboration between Contrast and Samsung to train eight filmmakers in the Middle East and Africa, with the objective of helping them develop their first short 360° video. A strategically low-cost endeavor, we shipped the equipment to the filmmakers and provided training over Skype and constant mentorship.

As a result, all eight filmmakers created strong 360° films which were successfully distributed on our social channels, showcasing stories from communities in Kenya, Jordan, Palestine, South Africa, Lebanon, Tunisia, Morocco, and Nigeria.
