IDEEN.TRANSFAIR Young filmmakers from India, Kenya, Colombia, and Togo
present ideas that could make the world a little bit better in 4 short films (2013)

Slide - Mahzouba Maya Faal, The Gambia “In Africa, there are a lot of stories that don’t get told. And many voices that don’t get heard.”
Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “I don’t have a university degree. My WELTFILME certificate is my professional qualification.” Slide - G-Othello Zordyu, Liberia “In Liberia, there’s no major TV station, no local film industry and, above all, no educational opportunities for young people to learn film. I want to inform and train the next generation.” Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME gave me the confidence to do things
in my own way.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “Film and television are such powerful tools for drawing
the public’s attention to
important social issues.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME has opened doors
for me that I didn’t even know existed.”
Slide - Fatou Ndure, The Gambia “The first days of the workshop were such an amazing experience. There was so much to take in, so many things to learn.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “WELTFILME — they’re just really good. They’re wonderful people. And they’ve got to keep doing this.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “Most of the media focuses only on the ugly parts of Africa — on war and disasters. I want people to see the real Africa.” Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “My training with WELTFILME helped me, as a woman, to assert myself in a male-dominated profession.”

COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

IDEAS TO INSPIRE

Year after year, thousands of young people take part in the volunteer programme weltwärts, where they learn what development work means in practice. In their work, they meet people with ideas and initiatives that offer sustainable solutions for global problems.

At IDEEN.TRANSFAIR, young filmmakers from India, Kenya, Colombia, and Togo introduce a selection of ideas in four short films that they produced in dialogue with weltwärts volunteers.

Whether it’s solar energy, anti-bullying workshops, local handicraft or reforestation — any idea might be picked up and applied anywhere in the world.

Finally, the films allow these ideas to travel around the globe, where they reach new audiences in many different countries and have the chance to be developed further.
