Communicating for Change (CFC)

Communicating for Change (CFC)

Communicating for Change (CFC) is a dynamic non-governmental, not-for-profit media agency based in Lagos, Nigeria, whose aim is to raise awareness of Africa’s environmental and development issues (including economic empowerment, health, environmental degradation, and democracy & good governance) to create positive change and ultimately improve lifestyles. CFC uses radio, TV, film, print, market research, capacity building, and special events to help change behavior and attitudes about vital social issues. CFC also plays an important role in promoting partnerships and capacity building between the public, private, and NGO sectors by providing cutting-edge communications support and products. In line with our mandate, CFC partnered with the Goethe Institut and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation to produce 3 films on democracy and good governance: "The Goal" depicts two Nigerian football teams whose play shows the importance of transparency, responsiveness, the rule of law, equality and good governance awarded Best Overall Film– Africast 2006 Conference, Abuja). "Your Choice" is a travesty focusing on the importance of good followership (awarded Best TV Director – Africast 2006; Best Director – Zuma Film Festival 2006; Best Student Film – Lagos International Film Festival 2006). "The Meal" is set in a restaurant where equality and fair play are challenged. These films were the outcome of a 3-week workshop, hosted by CFC, in which 9 aspiring filmmakers were trained in script writing and film production. Partners agreed that it was important to air these programs during the Nigerian 2007 election period, as the films focus on good leadership and followership. Tunde Kelani, the director of all 3 films and contributor to the workshop, also used the films as trailers on his award-winning film Abeni, which has been screened at many international film festivals and distributed across Nigeria and Africa.
