WINNER: Home Sweet Home Produced by RTV Slovenija and originally broadcast on RTV Slovenija
Judging Panel feedback: Choosing a winner in this category was extremely hard as there was a very high standard. Eventually we chose Home Sweet Home as its potential impact in Slovenia is immense. In telling the story from Samer’s point of view, the audience is directly able to relate to the challenges and difficulties faced by people who are marginalised and discriminated against through no fault of their own. Although it is a standard format, and relatively low budget, documentary, Samer is a strong central character whose story has a great potential to help break down stereotypes of refugees fleeing war by eliciting sympathy from viewers in a country little accustomed to refugees and minorities from outside of Europe. The construction of the narrative through the medium of Messenger was particularly effective.
