Date: Tuesday 21 June 2016

Venue: Australian Centre for the Moving Image

Address: Federation Square, Flinders St, Melbourne

Entry: Free

The Heartlands 2016 Arts Project: Stories from Refugee Youth features young people from refugee backgrounds telling their stories about their unique settlement journeys through film.

This screening will feature ten young people on screen and behind the scenes talking about their lives and communities, while celebrating a sense of unity in their shared circumstance as refugees.

Coming from countries including Somalia, Burma, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Egypt and Pakistan, these young filmmakers highlight their passions, hopes, dreams and journeys in a series of narratively disparate but emotionally connected short films.

The compile is 23 minutes long and screens at ACMI at 10am, 11am, 12pm (with Q&A afterwards) and 1.15pm.
