Medyada Göç Raporlama Konusunda Aracılı Kamusal Alanın Yeniden Yapılandırılması: Küresel Göç Film Festivali Örneği

Dilan CIFTCI [1]


The aim of the current study is to explore the four models of public spheres in modern democracies and the conceptual development of mediated public spheres with an emphasis on the migration issues in general and  special focus on the three important Global Migration Film Festival. This study provides an overview for the literature review on the migration media coverage around the world in order to map the negativity in migrant perceptions by using already existed studies on the global migration phenomena. The present data suggests that mediated public spheres in general, and more precisely cinema have a positive impact on the helping communities to have an ability to perceive migration issues positively. In findings indicate that The Global Migration Film Festival with the help of the differentiated films and screening in different countries and places demonstrated not only higher awareness on the behind scenarios on migration, but also higher empathy in the perceptions on global migration as well

Bu çalışmanın amacı, modern demokrasilerdeki dört kamusal alan modelini ve genel olarak göç konularına vurgu yapan ve üç önemli Küresel Göç Filmi Festivali'ne özel önem veren aracılı kamusal alanların kavramsal gelişimini araştırmaktır. Bu çalışma, küresel göç olayları üzerinde halihazırda var olan çalışmaları kullanarak göçmen algılarındaki olumsuzlukları haritalamak amacıyla dünyadaki göç medyası kapsamına ilişkin literatür taramasına genel bir bakış sunmaktadır. Mevcut veriler, genel olarak aracılı kamu alanlarının ve daha kesin olarak sinemanın, göç eden sorunları pozitif olarak algılama yeteneğine sahip olmalarına yardım eden topluluklar üzerinde olumlu bir etkiye sahip olduğunu göstermektedir. Bulgulara göre, farklı ülkelerdeki ve yerlerdeki farklılaştırılmış filmler ve gösterimlerin yardımı ile Küresel Göç Film Festivali'nin, göç konusundaki senaryoların ardındaki yüksek farkındalığı değil, aynı zamanda küresel göç algıları konusunda da daha fazla empati gösterdiğini göstermektedir.
