Unseen Images. A focus on migrant realities focuses on filmmakers with a history of migration. They present their short films and discuss the possibilities of accessing networks and resources of the domestic film industry.
In the Brunnenpassage, this human world, the international film festival of human rights, is presenting contemporary short films by filmmakers that have migrated to Austria. Thereby, attention is brought not only to the personal stories of migration, but there is also a focus on the experiences the film creators have had with domestic cultural policy and the demands they have made upon it.
Heimatfilm vs. World Cinema would like to create a space for networking and the exchange of expertise. Access to the networks and resources within the film industry will also make up part of the concluding discussions with the directors and other creative artists after the film presentations: What possibilities are there for financing and utilization at the Austrian and European level? Can migrant filmmakers profit sufficiently from public funding? Which formal and informal sources of knowledge can be used for this? Which – partly invisible – exclusions are taking place here? Topical lectures and workshops round off the program.
