Media Education Foundation (MEF)

The Media Education Foundation (MEF) produces and distributes documentaries and other educational resources designed to help the public engage in social and political issues as active citizens rather than passive spectators and consumers. To this end, MEF's films and study guides translate the latest scholarship and political commentary and analysis into accessible, interactive formats that encourage informed debate about public policy and its relationship to democracy. Since its founding in 1991, MEF has produced dozens of acclaimed films, including War Made Easy with Norman Solomon; Hijacking Catastrophe; Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land; No Logo with Naomi Klein; Rich Media, Poor Democracy with Robert McChesney; The Myth of Liberal Media with Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman; and On Orientalism with the late Edward Said.

The Media Education Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of the Caipirinha Foundation for its new film Blood and Oil, about the dangers and consequences of America's growing dependency on imported petroleum. Working with Make Films Not War will help MEF to expand its audience for Blood and Oil, particularly among activists for peace and the environment, as well as the growing number of ordinary citizens who are concerned about global warming, the "peaking" of oil, and the chaos and hardship that is likely to follow.
