Screening: Community Video Workshop
- 0 Comments
Footage from the presentation of the Community Video Workshop within the RIMA FILM FESTIVAL on October 12, 2018 at Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta.
The RIMA FILM FESTIVAL is a showcase of films that reveal the diverse and subjective experience of exile and migration.
While many of the cinematic and media portrayals on migration that reach us primarily focus on the negative experiences of migration, the stories being told during this festival cleverly and beautifully touch on the temporal and subjective psychological questions that exile triggers. Importantly, almost all these stories are defined by the main storyteller – by those who have experienced exile.
The 3rd edition of the Rima Film Festival will be taking place between the 12th-14th October at the Spazju Kreattiv Cinema in Valletta.
Within the RIMA filmfestival the Mahalla Festival and the Sustainable Design Collective presented a selection of movies created at the Community Video Workshop in Malta with third country nationals and local communities in Malta. The videos produced during the workshop will be published regular at the video wrokshop channel of the StreetWalking magazine.
Next session of the workshop will be on Saturday November 3, 9:00 am at Fortress Builders in Valletta.
Participation is free of charge.
The title, Palimpsest, originally denotes a piece of writing material on which the original writing has been erased to make room for later writing.
However, traces of the overwritten texts remain.
This paleographic phenomenon will inspire the artists of the Mahalla Festival 2022. They will be concerned with the use of resources in a
comprehensive way: in terms of ecological, economic, political, social and communal memory culture.
