Outcomes of the Halaqat audiovisual residency in 2022

In 2021, 6 Filmmakers drawn from the Arab diaspora in Belgium were selected to take part in the Halaqat audiovisual residency programme, in cooperation with Atelier Graphoui, Cinemaximiliaan and Sound Image Culture - SIC. Over the course of 2022, the film-makers worked on their projects, got to know each other, and were supported by professionals from the sector. The evening’s programme includes a screening of their five works and Sophie Soukias’ documentary 3 Tales of Halaqat, which portrays three stories composed closely with the artists of several Halaqat residencies.
