Proceeds from Socially-Conscious Films to Benefit Peter Gabriel's Esteemed Organization

SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec 16, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) --, a leading global community and online destination for high-definition and quality entertainment, gives back this holiday season by partnering with renowned organization WITNESS.ORG, which was founded by legendary musician and activist Peter Gabriel.

Starting today, Jaman will feature "Movies that Matter" - extraordinary films with a powerful message of social change. Through January 16, members of its international community can go to and watch a variety of compelling films online. For each film viewed, Jaman will donate proceeds to the WITNESS organization.

"Jaman was founded to offer films that engage and inspire, so WITNESS was a natural fit for us as we share socially-conscious films with our global audience," said Gaurav Dhillon, founder and CEO of Jaman. "Through this collaboration, not only will people be able to view great films from around the world, they will also be helping an incredible organization continue to promote change."

Because media can transform personal stories into powerful tools for change, "Movies that Matter" will feature films that highlight a variety of political, environmental and social issues.

"WITNESS believes in the power of storytelling and video to change the world," said WITNESS co-founder Peter Gabriel. "Through 'Movies that Matter', Jaman is offering viewers an opportunity to not only learn more about issues that matter, but at the same time make a positive impact on the world, by supporting our cause."(...)
