TP+: Call for regional fund to secure Pacific cultural identity

Broadcasters and content-makers in the Pacific are lobbying their governments for the creation of a Region-wide fund to help maintain the Pacific’s unique cultural identity.

The appeal was made at the 14th Oceania Television Symposium held during the 17th FIFO Documentary film festival in Tahiti earlier this month. It comes in the wake of the ‘tsunami of content’ now available via online platforms across the Pacific which threatens cultural identity and undermines the economic viability of regional broadcasters.
