Thessaloniki International Film Festival



Dailies from the Thessaloniki international Film Festival

The 61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival was concluded with great success, receiving the audience’s love in every possible way. More than 80,000 viewers and movie industry professionals watched the films and attended the Festival’s online events, whereas a large number films of were sold out. Agora, the Festival’s development branch, also achieved a great attendance, offering support to Greek cinema through a series of new initiatives, actions, and awards.

The 61st Festival hosted a series of exhibitions and visual art events, within the framework of TIFF’s main concept, “Intimacy: a modern tyranny”. Works of art, video mapping, as well as The Glasshouse Project installation adorned the city streets and squares, as well as the Port of Thessaloniki, offering glimpses of joy and hope to the city’s residents, who had the chance to enjoy a touch of art during their scarce walks for exercise, groceries and the covering of basic needs, amidst these hard days we’re experiencing. The goal is for these exhibitions to remain in the city’s public space even after the Festival.

Microphone - International Competition in 51st TIFF (Thessaloniki Film Festival)

Egypt's exemplary avant-garde director Ahmad Abdalla's new film Micriphone (2010) runs in International Competition this year at the 51st Thessaloniki Film Festival. 

 

 

Below is the latest from the makers of Microphone

 

Almost the same bunch of independent film makers and fighters against the local commercial loud scene...creators of "Heliopolis" (2009) made "Microphone" (2010) which is touring festivals worldwide this year. This week, at the Thessaloniki Film Festival.
Only one week after printing their first 35mm print, these proud filmmakers premiered at Toronto Film Festival tiff10 and now are in running for International Competition at the 51st Thessaloniki Film Festival.
"Microphone" is a movie about the underground artists in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, Egypt. In the tradition of their groundbreaking and award winning film (and one of my personal favorites of 2009) Heliopolis, Microphone is a film about multiple characters struggling to advance as a culture in an ancient world that is slow to change holding fast to tradition. It is a film about striving to get somewhere while getting nowhere and yet, being all the better for the journey in between. Microphone explores contemporary Alexandria and its underground music and art culture, offering us a view into an Alexandria never before experienced by the outside world.
