INSIDE STORY - Fall Update

INSIDE STORY has been a hit across Africa and is now the most widely seen film ever on the continent. From military officials in Angola to students in Botswana to theaters in Nigeria (and even as far as the Philippines) audiences are on their feet and cheering. 

This fall, Aric Noboa, President and Executive Producer for Discovery Learning Alliance, was invited to discuss INSIDE STORY’s success and impact on two panels:

 November 1:

Aric attended the Transformational Media Summit at George Washington University.   The summit at brought together some of the most innovative and inspiring change makers working at the intersection of media and social change. Aric was invited to speak on a panel titled, ‘ Media and Social Impact
Harnessing the power of media for good.”

Panelists included:

  • Georgia Arnold, MTV Staying Alive Foundation
  • Sean Dagan Wood, Positive News

November 5-7

Aric attended the DISCOP AFRICA  conference in Johannesburg South Africa.  DISCOP Africa is Africa’s highest regarded and only international Film, TV content, adaptation rights and packaged channel market.  Aric was invited to participate on the panel / discussion , ‘Closing Skill Gaps with Television “:

Two decades of educational programming in South Africa will serve as a backdrop in an attempt to predict the future role of instructional and pro-social television. This session will examine how tomorrow’s digital ecosystems will help close skill gaps and maximize the positive effects of television on cognitive development, academic achievements, professional training and community relations.
