Yesterday night Instituto Buena Bista (IBB) and Kosmopolis Netherlands gave out the prices for two winners of the Kosmopolis Stranger Videoworkshop, which took place in the IBB last week. For a local jury of experts on film, it turned out to be very difficult to choose two winners out of the eight small movies by Christy Sambo, Elvis Chen, Nick Polanco, J.C Stenacker, Darnel Rafaela, Frenjeska Schoop, Harvey Davelaar en Julivean ‘Papito’ Reigina. Still, the final winners chosen by the jury were the same as the ones chosen by the public: Harvey Davelaar with his movie “Running From Myself” en Papito Reigina with “Nadi Hasi”. They will be participating in the next round, the 3rd till 5th. of july in Amsterdam on behalf of foundation Kosmopolis, Strangerfestival Europe. 

Yours sincerely,

on behalf of Kosmopolis as well,
