Images and Insights with Homeless People

In keeping with our mission to raise the visibility of people and situations that society shuts its eyes to, this year’s focus is on homeless people in general and those sleeping on the streets of Barcelona in particular. We’ll be screening the results of the Creative Film Lab for Social Change run by Learning by Helping and Arrels Fundació , with support from Cine en Acción film school.

Creative Film Lab for Social Change

Over the course of eleven days, from Tuesday 10 November to Friday 20 November, we are inviting social innovation experts, documentary makers, members of NGOs and anyone else eager to do their bit to bring about positive change in society to come together to make a short documentary film on the issues faced by homeless people. After discussing their ideas with members and users of Arrels Fundació, the teams of participants will be equipped with the practical and theoretical tools to create their own short film, under the expert guidance of teachers, mentors, producers and editors.

After an intense fortnight of masterclasses, interviews, meetups and hours of filming, editing and reediting, we are thrilled to present the two short films to come out of the Creative Film Lab for Social Change.

You can watch them on our YouTube channel until Sunday 29 November.

Many congratulations to all the participants!
