Pin receives funding from the Dutch Counsil of Refugees

17 june 2022

We are very happy to announce that our short film production Pin has received funding from DAF, the foundation of the Dutch Counsil for Refugees (VluchtelingenWerk). DAF supports organisations, initiatives and projects that aim to create more support and understanding for refugees. Which is exactly what we aim to do with Pin, a short film written and to be directed by Bosnian-Dutch filmmaker Ismar Vejzovic.

Pin is the triad story of the life of a young professor turned refugee and his struggle to move on with his life after the loss of everything he held dear. This tragic drama uses Yugoslav wars as a backdrop while the viewer walks side by side with Alen and experiences his past, present and the future. Although the plot is situated in the past it still remains very much current today. Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Ukraine and dozens of other conflicts currently underway in full force all over the planet are still showing us how simple it is to pit people against one another. How easy it is to make people think in terms of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Therefore PIN is a realistic and universal anti-war story which shows what happens when we stop with dialogue and tolerance and resort to violence and weapons.

Thanks for your support Vluchtelingenwerk! It means a lot that you recognize our mission.
