Mission Statement

The Media & Policy Center's goal is to inform, challenge, and engage a responsive citizenry through media projects that enlighten, educate and empower those members of our society who seek to change their lives and their communities.

Description

The Media & Policy Center (www.mediapolicycenter.org) is a multiple award-winning media foundation specializing in the production of socially relevant projects in an entertaining and enlightening context. The Center was founded by Harry Wiland and Dale Bell, whose individual productions have won one Academy Award, five Emmys, one Peabody, two Christophers, two Cine Golden Eagles, and numerous other awards and nominations. Our collective films for PBS, networks, cable, and cinema represent an array of styles including journalism, documentary, dramatic feature film, performance, and industrial.

We formed the Center to apply our talents and experience to issues of social welfare, public policy, education, the environment, and health care. In doing so, we sought to address a glaring disconnect between citizens and public institutions, including national, state, and local governments. While these institutions are meant to provide leadership in establishing our national priorities, this process can only succeed if citizens have access to the information necessary to make well-reasoned and timely judgments about the issues facing them. Thus, the Media & Policy Center's primary goal is to inform, challenge, and ultimately engage a responsive citizenry and to encourage full and meaningful debate and participation across the political, social, and economic spectrum. We are working towards this end by using our media talents to create televised and coordinated multi-media projects that enlighten, educate and empower those members of our society who seek to change their lives and their communities.
