Balkans Beyond Borders (BBB) announces a parallel CALL for ENTRIES for the 10th edition of BBB Short Film Festival. In the frame of the Festival it will receive films under two sub-themes: Women and labour and Youth and labour. We invite young artists up to the age of 35 from the Balkan region and beyond to get inspired by these topics and send their film until the 11th of May. We accept all film genres with duration up to 30 minutes focusing on fiction, animation, experimental and documentary shorts, as well as digital arts.
With this call we aspire to raise awareness and open dialogue about the situation that women and young people face today in the labour market in Greece, the Balkans and Europe. Many young people seek opportunities abroad because of the crisis and women still face discrimination at work and less opportunities in their career perspectives. Part of BBB mission is to increase awareness on issues of contemporaneity, enhance intercultural dialogue and promote opportunities and collaborations in cultural sector and youth work.
The selected films will be part of a special screening (out of competition) of the 10th BBB Short Film Festival which will take place in Athens in October 2019.The screenings will be framed with parallel activities and it will be promoted as vital part of the Festival.
BBB continues its “festival in motion” and on the occasion of its 10th anniversary it comes back to Athens. After nine successive years, BBB gives the opportunity to the next generation of filmmakers to create, share and present their films, meet, collaborate and create solid partnerships in the cultural sector.
