Look further with this year’s theme of borders. Interpret this as you will: in the form of geographical borders, social borders, the changes the medium of film is experiencing, the borders that exist between film and different art forms, the constraints that surround the very production of films, even the expectations of what a film festival should be.
We focus on Greek and regional film in order to contextualize the visions at play: does something that can be called “Greek cinema” currently exist? What are its characteristics? How does current Greek film depart from or identify with films from the broader region?
The two competitions highlight emerging and regional cinema in the form of regional short films and feature film debuts.
