I am very happy to announce that my just finished video work about and with refugees, YOU’RE OUT, based on the homonymous performance held in Berlin, have already had an excellent international reception:

– it has been invited to the EUROPEAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL in Berlin,
where it will be officially presented and screened at Babylon Cinema

here is the schedule of the festival: 
I am in Berlin now and I will be present to the screening: I hope to share it with you and your friends!)
– it has been declared winner as Best Experimental Film at the CANADIAN DIVERSITY FILM FESTIVAL in Toronto– it won the Golden Prize category Concept at the INTERNATIONAL INDIPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL  in California.



The previous video of this project, Refugees Welcome, taken from the homonymous performance,has received the award for Best Film / Video at the Fine Arts Disciplines at theINTERNATIONAL BLACK FILM FESTIVAL in Berlin, where it has been presented a few months ago

and it has just won the ARFF Globe Award at’ AROUND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, with events scheduled on the following dates:

*** ARFF Berlin Award Ceremony // 17th of December @Acud Macht Neu
*** ARFF Amsterdam Winners Screening and After Party // 7th of January @LAB111
*** ARFF Barcelona Winners Screening and After Party // 3rd of February@Mau Mau
*** ARFF Paris Screening feat. with ÉCU International // 21th of April @ Les 7 Parnassiens



All this makes me very happy, mostly because these works were made with much love, devotion and dedication.

I created those videos in two different versions, slightly different: there is a version for festivals, and a version for exhibitions and collectors, numbered and signed as my usual.
