How do I see you?

FREE ZONE JUNIOR & DOKULAB FILM SCHOOL

Project How do I see you? covers a wide range of programs, such as different types of mobility programs: exchange of creative young individuals, filmmakers and influencers from Serbia and Kosovo*. These programs are created to strengthen the cooperation between Serbia and Kosovo* on the field of culture, art, film, media, human rights and activism.

Basic activities of this project include educational visits, workshops for young people, exchange of young filmmakers enrolled in Free Zone Junior and DokuLab film schools, as well as specialized themed round tables, master classes and analysis of media narratives of Kosovo* and Serbia in a form of video exhibitions that will be arranged during the three years of project realization for International Documentary and Short Film Festival – DokuFest in Prizren, and for Free Zone Film Festival in Belgrade.

CULTURAL EXCHANGE CAMPS

As part of its mobility segment, the project will ensure meetups of young people between the ages of 18 and 25 from Serbia and Kosovo* and their active participation in workshops and educational visits, which focus on research, exchange of opinions and ideas, development of media and film literacy, as well as on discovery of shared goals, problems and experiences – all while using the medium of video for creative expression. During the course of the project, 6 cultural exchange camps will be realized in total. In camps, young people from Kosovo* and Serbia are encouraged to accomplish the dialogue between them and cooperate, as well as to get to know each other better and creatively express themselves through the two-minute long videos where they talk about the way they see each other. Camp participants will have an opportunity to take part in educational visits, in which they will go on tours of many cultural organizations and institutions across Kosovo* and Serbia so as to inform themselves on different cultural and artistic programs and practices.

The mobility program also includes exchange of young filmmakers from documentary film schools of Free Zone Junior and DokuLab. Each year, short documentaries made in these schools are screened on both festivals as part of a special segment of the program called Future is here. Considering that media on both sides are selectively informing the public, and that young people in Serbia don’t know how people of the same age group from Kosovo* are living and vice versa, the idea of the project is to include identifying events on which media from Serbia and Kosovo* have reported and analysis of their narratives. This activity will result in creating special annual reports in a form of video exhibitions that will also be part of both festivals.

The project will also create a special online platform on which at least 100 two-minute long stories and interviews made by young participants of this mobility program will be available, as well as special video presentations on media coverage.

EMPOWERMENT FOR KOSOVO YOUTH

In this terrifying time in which fake news and hate speech are presented as norms of living, mission of How do I see you? project is to support young people in Kosovo* and Serbia to overcome social challenges, so as to find a place where they can come together, discover each other and grasp cultural and social models they come from.

Started in 2020, How do I see you? is a project that DokuFest, Free Zone Junior program (Fund B92) and Free Zone Film Festival carry out together with the financial support of the European Union.
