HiddenWords Cinema is cinema on wheels that travels to refugee camps and screen cartoons to refugee children and children in need.
We are providing free film, animation and creative workshops for children, mainly to help them integrate into their new environment and show their work to wider public.
All the video material filmed during our workshops and video material from locations where project will be hold will be later on at the end of the project presented in a documentary film.
Curent Status: FUNDRAISING
Our Mission is to travel with old van from the 80's, which is turned into mobile cinema from Europe to Asia. We will visit refugee camps and critical zones, where we are going to screen cartoons and animations to the children and organise for them animation, film and creative workshops. Our goal is to bring a smile into their faces at least for a moment. Simple as that !
That is the fun part. We have a saying in Slovenia called "The one that go slow will get far". We are going to travel with Renault Traffic van, year 1988. The car can not go faster than 100 km/h, but it is reliable and easy to fix in case of damage. The idea is to install cinema screen on the side of the van so cinema can be set in a blink of the eye. Equipment was donated by organisation Schüler Helfen Leben based in Berlin, Germany and it include FullHD Projector, Projection Screen, Sound system, Computer and Power Generator. The cartoons were donated by local artists, animation festival Animateka and independent animators.
Our Cinema Journey will begin in Slovenia and end up in Nepal. The path is planned according to locations of refugee camps on our way. We are planning to screen the cartoons in at least 5 refugee camps in each of 9 countries on the way. We will start in Slovenia, continue to Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India and finally Nepal. Entire way is approximately 15000 km long and will take around a year to finish.
HELP US TO HELP
Here we humbly ask for your help. Help us to help those kids and to make a future better place. When we help someone it is not only the help that matters. It is the message that we are sending to the ones in need. Unselfish help is like a chain. Help creates help. If you came so far and are still reading this that means you care. If you are unable to help us with donations we will be grateful for your positive thoughts and positive vibrations.
We already have all the necessary equipment for mobile cinema to function, including projector, screen, power generator, sound system, pillows, blankets and popcorn machine. The cartoons were donated from local artists, TV studios and animation festivals. We are still missing the funds for travel and living expenses for our crew of volunteers and for making the van safe and nice to see. We are so close to achieve our goal and there is not much we still need to expend our project outside of Slovenia.
DESIGN OF MOBILE CINEMA AFTER PAINT JOB WILL BE DONE
