On the closing night of the Pame Kaimakli 2020 Festival, “A Delicious Place”* pop-up cinema, screened a series of eleven short video stories/documentaries relating to the thematic of food and communities. These were produced by A-Place partners and their extended network and focused on the role of food, at a time for environmental, social, economic, and health crisis. The documentation and presentation of the stories in Nicosia was an opportunity to connect all the partners with a particular topic, that of food, and despite the Covid-19 limitations to participate in a joint event with their stories, sounds and tastes.
The documentaries showcase community actions taking place in Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, Greece, Germany, Israel, Portugal, Slovenia and Cyprus.
