Press Release – 14th BBB Short Festival


14th edition of BBB Short Film Festival
– Edgetales –

11 – 14 October 2023
Nikšić, Montenegro

The 14th edition of Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels this year to the city of Nikšić in Montenegro, from the 11th to the 14th of October, with the theme Edgetales.

There is a thread that unites all stories with one another, crafting each one meticulously knot by knot, with the intention of revealing what lies beneath.

This year, our festival is built around the theme Edgetales, showcasing a collection of 33 short films that celebrate diverse experiences in the Balkan region and beyond. These selected tales comprise the Competition programme, and the filmmakers will have the opportunity to be awarded the ‘BBB Best Film’, ‘First Entry’ and ‘Audience’ award, along with three ‘Special Mentions’.

The screening also programme includes the non competition-international section BBB Beyond, the section BBB Focus: Italy with short films selected by Villamare Short Film Festival, and for the first time, and in collaboration with the School of Film of the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, the section BBB & Co: young creators – fresh ideas. All screenings will be held at Cinema 213, in the center of Nikšić. | 14th BBB SFF screening programme

We are also very excited to present the 2-day event BBB Cine-Forum titled Unveiling Balkan Cinema: past, present and future, on the 13th and 14th of October, which develops around an effort to (re-)investigate Balkan cinemas, and discuss filmmaking practices, through a series of workshops and masterclasses. The BBB Cine-Forum will be held at IEC Tehnopolis. | BBB Cine-Forum programme

Join the BBB experience in Nikšić!
