Home Stream by Giulia Gandini Impact

Giulia is one of our Creative Conscience award scheme community, a creative in the Film & Photography category – recently we support her amazing project  ‘Home Stream’, a mini-series on homelessness. Lily, who has been homeless for over a year, was given an iPhone for three days to record her life on the streets of London. The film gives a powerful insight into the hardships she faces and shares her moving story, watch it here

Home Stream has already had more than 195,000 views on YouTube and more than 8 million views on social media. It was distributed online by Real Stories and NowThis, it has won the Best Mobile Film award at 20 Min Max Film Festival in Germany, it has been screened at BFI Southbank with BFI Future Film and also at the Cinema Museum with We The Peoples Film Festival. Most recently Home Stream is part of the official selection and nominated for the British Documentary Award at Cheapcuts Documentary Film Festival, shortlisted in the Mobile Video Category at Unknown Film Festival and also finalists at The People’s Film Festival. 

Well done Lily, featured, in being brave enough to tell your story and to Giulia for making this happen. Originally from Italy, Giulia is a London-based writer/director. Her latest short film My Time (about a girl who has her first period at school) was long-listed for the Oscars Live Action Category in 2020. You can see the film here. She especially loves social filmmaking and empowering narratives.
