Chiapas Media Project (CMP)/Promedios seeks university, cultural and community-based sponsors to host screenings on our Fall Tour 2007. The tour will feature videos produced by indigenous video makers from the state of Chiapas, primarily from the Zapatista Regional Media Centers.

CMP/Promedios is an award winning, bi-national partnership that provides video equipment, computers and training enabling marginalized indigenous and campesino communities in Southern Mexico to create their own media. CMP/Promedios is currently distributing 26 indigenous produced videos worldwide.

CMP/Promedios asks for an honorarium based on the means of the host organization to help continue the work of the CMP/Promedios. Press kits are available that include articles on CMP/Promedios, bios, photos etc. Please download our press kit at: for more information.
