As some of you are aware, 'Culture Unplugged' is not just a name of a studio, it is a mission - a vision and aspiration to integrate disparate parts of the self and the global human society. It aims to achieve this, primarily by leveraging the power of new media and extending the effort to offline events and actions, but above all be the seeker of truth herself on the journey her vision charts ahead of her. It is not just an organization, it is the way of being - as referred here as 'She'.
Culture Unplugged debuted in May 2008 with Asia and MiddleEast's first online film festival 'East Speaks, Here', which is now followed by 'Green Unplugged' (launched in January 2009). The film festival is live at present and aims to connect, contemplate and celebrate life, nature and culture through cinema. Visit the festival at : (http://www.cultureunplugged.com/festival)
Another online venue that went live last January is 'filMedia network'. This film and media network offers substantial archive of quality shorts, documentaries and features from Asia and Middle East, to film lovers around the world who are plugged into the net and are looking for free-to-watch soulful cinema. It also caters to upcoming or established independent film-makers and grassroots production that are looking to reach out to a wider audience (for social mission or simply to share with the world their voice/art). It facilitates their need to be discovered by global producers, find new markets and connect with prospective collaborators from different regions.
With the offering of 'Truth Seekers', Culture Unplugged has initiated an effort to bring film-makers, content producers, writers, professionals from social/scientific arena and world citizens to a single platform to connect, communicate and collaborate in meaningful ways. Its aim is to cater to the innate quest of its audience to seek cultural understanding and transform and evolve the social sensibilities. Initially, the 'Frame Voice' will dwell on current and relevant socio-political debates around culture, identity and media, but will expand the focus in the future to subjects of spiritual relevance. With 'Truth Seekers', C.U.S. intends to facilitate cross-pollination of ideas, spirit and knowledge amongst its audience, but above all, it aspires to spawn awareness, expand the vision of future and promote the collective contemplation over global/local challenges.
If you wish to support and bring together a spiritually and socially conscious community (creatives + civil society) that serves and furthers the contemporary world, join the mission - Culture Unplugged.
