Horizons Filmmakers Showcase: Making Your Heart at Home

Join us for a special screening of short films from a selection of international filmmakers exploring themes of asylum, migration and exile, trauma, joy and healing. The screening will include the premiere of HOME’s first ever Horizons film commission.

Earlier this year, HOME launched our Horizons film commission opportunity to artists living in Greater Manchester with lived experience of forced migration.

Valeriia Lukianets short documentary proposal was selected by a panel working representing HOME and CAN. Valeriia is currently in production for her film, with shooting happening throughout April with the support of HOME.

This film will explore three displaced lives trying to find themselves in a new country and make Manchester their home. The film will be a small reminder of how important it is to stay together, to help each other, and show our support and solidarity for people living through these experiences.

Valeriia Lukianets is Ukrainian actress and film director who has been displaced from Ukraine to Manchester in May 2022. As she settles in the UK, Valeriia continues to deliver her creative work and projects with different communities and organisations around the city.

The screening of Valeriia’s film will be complimented with a selection of short films programmed by Horizons producers.
