CINESPACE, with funding from MULTICULTURAL VICTORIA’s Local Anti-Racism Initiatives program, is creating 15 minutes of content for an anti-racism educational tool and campaign directed at young Victorians aged 12-15.

Here’s The Real Joke, Mate! is an anthology of very short films that uses humour as a strategy to counteract racism. The central premise is that most often, people in Australia explain away their racism as a joke. (Yeah, right!) Here, humour will be used to identify and expose the ignorance behind different aspects of racism.

The films are intended to be used as a teaching aid within schools and communities and will be accompanied by learning resources. The resources developed with the assistance of Victoria University will offer background material and strategies for non-confrontational response.
