Karya audio-visual atau sinema adalah sarana strategis dalam proses komunikasi antar-budaya sebuah komunitas. Sejauh ini media film kerap dipakai sebagai alat propaganda kepentingan politik partisan dan parsial yang melahirkan kesalahpahaman untuk memahami sebuah kebudayaan. Penghancuran makna dan nilai budaya milik sebuah bangsa selalu melibatkan media audio-visual untuk menciptakan efek psikologis lebih jauh dalam usaha membangun opini dan menggalang massa. Iran dan kebudayaannya menjadi korban dari kesalahpahaman duni, namun film-film produksi sineas Iran kemudian membuka ‘dialog kebudayaan’ secara artistik dan berwibawa. Tujuan penelitian ini untuk menemukan pola komunikasi budaya Iran melalui media sinema dan melihat simbol-simbol kebudayaan Iran mempengaruhi komunikasi budaya. Penelitian kualitatif memakai metode diskriptif analisis pada anasir komunikasi budaya yang diintroduksi pesan-pesan dalam film-film Iran. Metode ini berupaya menafsirkan makna dan perilaku yang ditampilkan manusia dalam situasi tertentu menurut perspektif teori yang dipakai. Hasil pembahasan menunjukkan bahwa tiga film karya sutradara terkenal dari Iran Majid Majidi yaitu; Children of Heaven, Colur of Paradise dan Baran sangat efektif mengomunikasikan segala hal penting dalam kebudayaan Iran untuk melihat dan mendalami semangat ketahanan masyarakat Iran hari ini yang jarang termaktub dalam berita-berita akibat politik global. Representasi kebudayaan Iran disana sangat natural dan sederhana tanpa memakai rekayasa gambar (visual-effect) dalam cerita sehari-sehari. Reproduksi kebudayaan Iran dalam ketiga film di atas memakai pendekatan dan sudut-pengambilan-gambar (shooting) yang terukur, intens dan subtil. Semangat sufisme dan altruime mencuat dalam proses produksi dan kontens sinematik Iran.

Pekanbaru is the capital city of Riau Province in Indonesia which is known for its progressive trading that made it into a multi-ethnic city. Accordingly, the most ethnic group in Pekanbaru city is the Minangkabau with 40.96% of the total population, followed by Malays who are the native of Riau province, then Javanese, Batak, and Chinese. There is an interesting phenomenon related to youth self-concept from Minangkabau (Minang) as the majority tribe who don’t acknowledge themselves as Minangnese when they interacting with their peers from across tribes. In that situation, they choose to call themselves “Orang Pekanbaru” which means people who originated from Pekanbaru city instead.

Instagram Stories is one of the main features of Instagram. Indonesia becomes one of the most active countries in using and creating Instagram Stories content compared to other countries. However, the use of the Instagram Stories feature has raised concerns because of the daily activities, such as food consumed, holiday activities, and emotions that become the public consumptions by sharing moments using photos or videos through the Instagram Stories feature. When people use the feature on Instagram Stories to take moments and daily activities, this behavior triggers the ignorance of social interactions surrounding them because they only focus on creating Instagram Stories. The phenomenon of the moments’ preservation through Instagram Stories feature can create phubbing behavior as a definition that describes someone’s indifferent behavior in an environment. They tend to focus on their smartphones rather than interacting with their surroundings.

One of the biggest global challenges of this era is the rise in extreme violent behavior (extremism) and radicalization among the younger generation, especially high school students. The most prominent extremism and radicalism today is religion-based, which is generally driven by the exclusivity of ideological, political, racial or ethnic groups. We cannot deny the fact that the group most vulnerable to extremism and radicalism is a group of middle school students, given their age in the search for identity and sometimes burning by excess energy which if not channeled into positive channels can actually increase the tendency of extremism and radicalization. One of the biggest determinants of extremist tendencies and radicalization towards students is the teacher and the school environment. Compared with parents, teachers have more frequency and intensity of interaction with them, so teachers are expected to be able to teach and give examples of character values such as attitude of respect, tolerance, mutual respect for differences, honesty, and others. Therefore the inculcation of values is characterized by preventing extremism and radicalization and must be preceded by efforts to increase teacher understanding through media literacy.

Using a communication mediation model, the present study tested the influencing factor of social media utilization on the political engagement on social media. Through O-S-O-R model proposed by McLeod, Kosicki, and McLeod, this study tested the correlation between pre-exposure (motivation) – Stimulus (media social use) – post-exposure orientation (political efficacy) – Response (political engagement) in the context of Chinese youth of Singkawang. By analyzing the Pearson correlation and linear regression of 125 respondents collected through a questionnaire, this model resulted in several findings, for example, motivation had a relationship with the use of social media for political information purposes where social utility motives had a more significant effect than other motives. The use of political information media had an influence on an individual's internal and collective efficacy rather than external efficacy. Political efficacy generated by the use of social media had an influence on the political engagement of Singkawang Chinese youth even though external efficacy was deemed a negative predictor of political engagement.

This study aimed to determine the construction of cross-border smoke haze (Transboundary Haze Pollution) on detik.com and malaysiakini.com news portal. This study used qualitative method with critical discourse analysis (Critical Discourse Analysis/ CDA) from Teun A. van Dijk’s Model. The results of this study showed that both the reporters detik.com and malaysiakini.com thematically used certain language prominence in writing the news. That was done to attract the attention of the readers. From these two different news portals, it could be concluded that each media was influenced by the interest of each country. It was also very clear that each media did not want to blame the state itself and pro-government. Schematically, from the beginning, detik.com reporters directed that Malaysia corner Indonesia not only through the issue of fog but also touched on the issue of the invasion of pigs. Whereas in the news portal malaysiakini.com, the journalist had directed the reader to the protest letter posted by Malaysia to the Indonesian government. While, semantically, detik.com reporters saw that Malaysia truly blames Indonesia without looking at companies from their countries which involved in forest and land fires in the Indonesian territory. On the malaysiakini.com portal, they dismissed it by making a phrase wanting to help the Indonesian government in dealing with fires that occurred in Indonesian territory.

Human beings need feedback all the time so as to improve and (or) maintain certain behaviour. However, not every feedback can help one improve or maintain his/her behavior, unless they are appropriately given in a way they are constructive. Much of informal learning on different life aspects including feedback giving practices is done through media. As participants in media programs or viewers, we are much influenced by whatever goes on in the media. Consequently, there is high need to ensure media practices are appropriate so that they can influence the society in a very positive manner. This study analyses feedback giving practices among judges of Bongo Star search program using feedback giving principle. The data used in this study are video clips of BSS in 2015 episode 10. Results show that Bongo Star Search judges with regard to feedback giving principle did not observe the relevant principles to large extent and with regard to the feedback giving principle, they did not observe the principle description to a relatively large extent. Accordingly, the study calls for training among judges of Bongo Star Search on how to give effective feedback.
