Watch, critique, create the news: A public forum

What expectations and demands should we set for our province's media? How can journalism help foster vibrant communities, active citizens and social, environmental and economic justice? At its best, what would a media outlet be and do for our people and province? And how can Newfoundlanders and Labradorians work together to create independent media that matters?

Cinema Politica and The Independent invite you to answer these questions with us during a film screening of the evening news.

On Sunday, November 30, we will 'Watch the news. Critique the news. Create the news.' After watching a classic (yet hot off the press) edition of your favourite provincial evening news show, we will collectively discuss what we've seen and what it means to us.

Then, with inspiration from videos of leading independent journalists from across Canada and around the world, we will create and share ideas about what media could and should be in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Please join us-
Sunday, November 30
7 p.m.
Foran Room, St. John's City Hall
10 New Gower Street
