A generation of future filmmakers have gathered at the Bizkaia Aretoa for the morning screening of the second day of the Homeless Film Festival. Young people from the schools Arxandape Ikastola, Begoñazpi Ikastola, IES Rekalde BHI, IES Ibarrekolanda BHI, IES Ondarroa BHI have been the protagonists in this morning screening.
But before giving way to these future promises, the public has been able to enjoy the short films made in the Bizitegi film workshops, by the users of its day centers. Bizitegi believes in cinema as a vehicle to combat social discrimination, and we must highlight the passion that these users have to create their own stories, stories that have been received with a standing ovation from the public. The short films presented were “Un día en la vida” and “Mil colores”.
Next, in order to raise awareness among young audiences about the importance of social cinema, a short film made by Emaús, titled “La Vuelta”, and directed by Joanes Camara, was screened. Then, before giving way to the finalist short films made in schools, the winning short film of the official section, “Todo va bien” directed by Adrián Ordóñez, was screened. The director himself and Hassan, the protagonist of the short film, have come from Malaga to Bizkaia Aretoa to present their work.
To close the morning screening, the finalist short films made by ikastolas and schools were screened, specifically at Arxandape Ikastola, Begoñazpi Ikastola, IES Rekalde BHI, IES Ibarrekolanda BHI, IES Ondarroa BHI.
