One of its kind, Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels every year in a different Balkan city tackling topics of contemporaneity and focuses on new regional productions, functioning as a stage of supporting and promoting young and emerging filmmakers. This year the Festival tackles the theme of urban life and its geometries: a point of reference: a common space for multiple identities that develop and get defined by historical, urban, political and societal memories. During the three days of the festival many interactive and parallel activities take place such as: round tables, workshops, cultural walks, networking events, music events, parties etc. After a 5 years journey in the Balkans: Belgrade, Athens, Tirana, Bucharest and Sarajevo it is time for Thessaloniki to host the Festival.
–> Subscriptions start at 11:00am at WE. Participation Cost is 5€.
