Shared Verified: Young African filmmakers take on COVID misinformation

Emerging filmmakers across Africa from the MultiChoice Talent Factory teamed up with Verified to fight COVID-19 misinformation in their communities. A new series of seven short films encourage people to Pause and take care before they share online.

The filmmakers – from Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe – used popular memes, youth voices and humour to make sure their videos resonate with their target audience. 

The new short films can be viewed on MultiChoice channels in Africa, and you can also watch them on MultiChoice Talent Factory’s Facebook page.

We can all help stop the spread of misinformation in our networks. Pause. Take care before you share.
