Post Film Collective
The Post Film Collective elaborates on the work and experiences of The Post Collective into the realm of cinema, upon an invitation by Robin Vanbesien. Since 2018, The Post Collective is an autonomous platform of co-creation, co-learning and cultural activism created by and for refugees, asylum seekers, sans-papiers and accomplices. It introduces a range of artistic, cultural and employment opportunities, and provides a commoning environment for its members regardless of their legal status. The collective aims to develop creative alternatives beyond the dominant systems of control and exclusion it is facing. This means facilitating the position where one does not struggle to be assimilated but instead rethink and re-conceptualize critically a future together as a community.
The Post Film Collective is Mahammed Alimu, Marcus Bergner, Hooman Jalidi, Sawsan Maher, Mirra Markhaeva, Robin Vanbesien and Elli Vassalou. Formed in 2020, the collective is based between Ghent, Antwerp and Brussels.
