La selezione di Focus On Greece è nata grazie alla collaborazione con il Drama International Short Film Festival, il maggior festival greco di cortometraggi la cui importanza è riconosciuta anche a livello europeo, fungendo da qualifica per gli EFA European Film Awards.
“Short films are being screened, promoted and applauded in Greece and abroad. The International Short Film Festival of Drama recognizes the need for further promotion and visibility of short films to a wider audience. As part of our collaborative spirit we strive to nurture in a joint effort further cultural dialogue through the power of the short moving images.
Over the years, the films that have received awards and distinctions at the Drama International Short Film Festival have been participating in a voyage to meet the movie-going audience at partner film festivals around the world. Being the most important gathering place for the Greek filmmakers, who in recent years have excelled at the most important international film festivals,
we aim at the promotion of the work of new Greek filmmakers by strengthening their presence in the international arena.
We are honoured to present a selection of some of the best Greek short films in recent years at the 7th edition of Cisterna Film Festival 2021”.
