Film projects for 2021 – 2022
Brexit and the Belgian Brits
A 100% community-funded initiative to capture the implications of Brexit for Brits in Belgium. Far from stereotypes and catchphrases, individuals’ stories highlight the very personal consequences of the UK’s departure from the EU.
We follow Silvia and Nanouk, the Brussels-based urban community-builders and founders of The City is Our Playground as they fine-tune techniques to build trust, unlock creative potential and encourage new connections among participants – leaving a tangible mark in locations they share.
French NGO Gynécologie Sans Frontières raises awareness of women’s needs in France and parts of francophone Africa. It advocates better support, notably around pregnancy and childbirth, providing medical care and training where needed.

Peter Owen-Jones, environmental activist, author and parish priest, will present the UK’s first 100% community-owned biomass district heating project: a social enterprise established in rural Surrey in 2015 provides sustainable heating and hot water to retired seafarers.
