The Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival

In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels to Athens, where  the headquarters of the eponymous NGO organising the festival is based. This year, similar to last year, young artists from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) up to the age of 30 are invited to create their own short films on a pre-defined subject. Entries are accepted from the 1st of November 2010 until the 31st of March 2011. This year’s edition will tackle the topical subject of crises, and aspiring artists will be invited to address the question of “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Crises?”.

Crises have always been a reality in people’s lives and most of the time we are facing difficult situations which confront us to the different faces of crisis. But how do we define crises and what are we afraid of? Can crises serve as opportunities?

In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels to Athens, where  the headquarters of the eponymous NGO organising the festival is based. This year, similar to last year, young artists from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) up to the age of 30 are invited to create their own short films on a pre-defined subject. Entries are accepted from the 1st of November 2010 until the 31st of March 2011.  This year’s edition will tackle the topical subject of crises, and aspiring artists will be invited to address the question of “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Crises?”.

 

Crises have always been a reality in people’s lives and most of the time we are facing difficult situations which confront us to the different faces of crisis. But how do we define crises and what are we afraid of? Can crises serve as opportunities?

 

The festival addresses young people, up to 30 years old, interested in creatively expressing their ideas about the Balkans region through film making. Balkans Beyond Borders encourages all young people to participate regardless their social, cultural or religious background.

 

The films can be documentaries or fiction, animations, recorded performances and they must address the subject of the call, having no more than 30 minutes length. The official language of the competition is English.

 

More information on how to apply is available on the Balkans Beyond Borders website:

BBB started as an Initiative in the framework of Southeast Europe and the EU Leadership and Development Programme (LDP) and is now a non-profit organization based in Athens with the  purpose of  promote intercultural dialogue and an innovative way of learning through the art of film-making and image. Moreover, BBB aims to support young artists from Balkans and promote their work on both local and European level.

 To this aim, the Balkans Beyond Borders Film Festival will travel to a different Balkan city each year addressing a different subject. The Festival will be reinforced by a number of supporting activities throughout the year including, seminars, exhibitions, workshops, other cultural events, as well as collaborations with local and international film festivals.
