Values of Cinema Society of Zimbabwe

CSZ understands the immense value of creative and cultural industries towards achieving Vision 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals. As such, our core values are

Everything we do is rooted in a people-centric, future-forward philosophy. Our values steer the way we work; how we do things is just as important as what we do.

We join the dots – collaboration is in our DNA

We bring creative people together, from all disciplines, turning up the volume on their voices, providing a platform for their creative ideas and projects, ultimately empowering them to amplify themselves.

We support and empower – we are here to accelerate change.

We are on a journey to rear a new era of creative communities across Zimbabwe, built on the foundations of inspiration, camaraderie, and collaboration.

We are curious, open, and honest – our knowledge is for sharing.

We represent a broad industry of myriad skills and talent, made up of diverse individuals from all walks of life. We build strong and supportive communities where ideas can flow freely. We seek out new talent, new ideas, and new ways of doing things, consistently challenging the status quo – just like the creative sector we stand for.

We celebrate difference – respecting the humanity and creativity in everyone.

Fierce representation matters, which is why we seek out diverse voices and stories, as these narratives are integral to the development of our collective work. We know that we are working with an uneven playing field, and we are here to drive movement towards wider diversity and inclusivity.

Our digital community platform is underpinned by our values, in a way that promotes the creative industries and encourages others to succeed. We continue to create an inclusive environment in which our workforce and members can feel listened to.
