LOOP Video Production: announcing the winner

We are happy to announce the results of the fourth “A-PLACE – Video Production Open Call”, in its 2023 edition.

We received 103 project proposals, with applications coming from 15 European countries. The projects submitted have revealed a wide variety of approaches to building and engaging communities in art-based placemaking processes. The quantity and quality of the proposals have led the jury to an exciting and complex deliberation process. We would like to thank everyone who submitted a proposal for their interest and efforts. Finally, the jury decided to assign the award to the project entitled:
“We are Here” by Camila Flores Fernández.

Camila Flores-Fernández (Lima, 1996) is a Peruvian researcher, multimodal anthropologist and visual artist based in Belgium. Her practice comprises writing, video and mixed media to explore intersectionality and identity.

The proposed project is a documentary film that explores the life stories of 12 young refugees currently seeking international protection based on sexual orientation or gender identity in the city of Brussels. The film will the product of an active collaboration between the Brussels-based youth work organization Queers on the Move (QOM), the young refugees, and the filmmaker.

The video will be exhibited in the 2023 edition of the LOOP Festival which will take place in Barcelona, in November. The jury members were Leandro Madrazo (School of Architecture La Salle, Barcelona and A-Place Project Coordinator), Ramón Parramón  (IDENSITAT, Barcelona) and Pli-é collective
