ΒΒΒ SPECIAL SCREENING: Youth and Labour/ Women and Labour

The 10th Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival “e-motions” will feature a special screening of Balkan films under two sub-themes: Youth and Labour / Women and Labour in order to shed light upon the issues that women and youth face nowadays in the labour market. The screening will take place the last day of the four-days festival on October 17-20 2019, in which young artists will present their perspective, experience or viewpoint while parallel events will take place in order to motivate the audience.


Through these stories we will meet characters who are forced to leave their country, persons who are experiencing exploitation and oppression at work or facing with dilemmas. These stories depict characters who absorb the political and economic problems of our time and struggle to survive in a harsh environment trying to achieve their goals.
