On 24 March 2018, Wilfried is launching – Refugee 3.0 – the 3rd edition of Refugee Film Collection. As the basis for “The Refugee Memorial” – Refugee Film Collection ” is representing an unique collection of shortfilms dealing with the topic of “migration” from different artistic points of view. The 3rd edition is incorporating 22 videos, most of them were recently produced, respectively created.

In 2015, when Wilfried was initiating Refugee Film Collection the refugee crisis was continuously in the news, also because countries like Germany were making spectacular political decisions, in the end everybody was completely overwhelmed because the incredible dimensions of the refugee streams became visible. Later in 2016 and the following years. the refugees will remain in the news, for instance, in Germany due to xenophobic, populist neofascist attacks against refugees shocking the public. Later the refugees remain a topic in the political discourse, also the reasons for migrating, for instance, the war in Sysria will keep on escalating, but in 2020 another form of migrating will dominate the news, it is the Corona virus which starts migrating from China around the world leaving behind a trace of infections and thousands of dead people – a pandemic – possible and enforced through the globalization. The countries close the borders, nobody can move from one country to another anymore, and the refugees whereever they persevere in Libya, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, Jordan and elsewhere are condemned to stay where the currently are, the refugee camps are the new true concentration camps and nobody cares – greetings from the Nazis – but it can be predicted, it will not take too long until they start the storm on Europe another time – they have nothing to lose.
