Bizitegi in collaboration with the Santurzine Festival has created the international section "KALEAN", with the purpose of rewarding productions that help us to make visible the reality of homeless people, in situations of poverty or social exclusion. We have been able to verify that there are not many productions on this reality and we want with sections like Kalean to encourage and promote the works that reflect the reality of the homeless and of people in social exclusion.
The participating works must deal with the situation of homeless people, in situations of poverty or social exclusion.
Short fiction or documentary films, national or international, made by people of any nationality and age can compete.
The selected short films will be screened alternately within the SZ8 programming and the 5th edition of the HFF that will be held on November 18 and 19 in Bilbao, at the Bizkaia Aretoa. The winning short film will receive the Kalean Award which will be presented at the Santurzine Gala on October 17.
Bizitegi popular jury made up of users, workers and interns. The short films have been screened in Bizitegi centers and 82 people have participated in the vote.
