Artists working in conflict regions are confronted with drastic changes in their living conditions and often lose access to networks and opportunities to produce and distribute their work. In order to be able to continue their work, an open call in September 2022 invited filmmakers who are based in war zones. The film evening will show the submissions from Syria, Myanmar, Libya and Ukraine and ask in a subsequent panel discussion, also with regard to the current global situation: How can we support artists? We look forward to welcoming Rahel Leupin & Heba Hage-Felder (Artlink), Dagmar Reichert (artasfoundation) and other guests.
Winners: Ameen Abo Kaseem (Syria), Khin Thethtar Latt (Myanmar), Moe Myat May Zarchi (Myanmar), Olena Siyatovska (Ukraine), Simon Mozgovyi & Tabor LTD (Alina Gorlova, Maksym Nakonnechnyi et Yelizaveta Smith) (Ukraine), Usama Benyaala (Libya), Vasyl Lyah (Ukraine).
Duration: approx. 2 hours
