17th Festival ZEMOS98: Caring for the City, Reclaim the Commons

Our Doc Next Network partner ZEMOS98 presents a last edition of their festival (read this post for background information), focusing on a theme that has been at the core of their work throughout the past years: Reclaim the Commons. 

Four years have passed since the protest wave of 2011 captivated Europe. Far from subsiding, the tremors are spreading beyond the Southern countries. From the peripheral neighbourhoods of Istanbul to the housing estates in London, and the formerly industrial districts of Warsaw, ordinary citizens are coming together, as communities, to defend common goods and counter the inertia of their increasingly distant local governments.

ECF is very sad that ZEMOS98 will be shut down, and we invite you to join this final meeting on 15 to 18 April where we are sure the whole ZEMOS98 team will offer the best possible edition, despite the difficult conditions they find ourselves in.
