Main services of Sunshine Cinema
1. Community Screenings + Media Training
With a mobile cinema unit, they screen short films that address social and environmental challenges and practical ways to overcome them. Sunshine Cinema has a research team that scouts out appropriate technologies – simple engineering solutions – already in use across the continent, document these, and edits the footage into three-minute clips with practical information and how-to instructions. These are shared with rural communities during screenings and workshops across the continent, using a mobile solar cinema.

2. Green Your Screening
Their main aim with this service is to promote alternative energy and energy conservation by providing screening events that are solar powered in terms of lighting, sound, and screen.
