PV is a set of techniques to involve a group or community in shaping and creating their own film, making video easy and accessible and bringing people together to explore issues, voice concerns or simply to be creative and tell stories. This process enables a group or community to take collective action to effectively address issues that are important to them and to communicate their ideas to decision-makers and/or other groups and communities.
