THE GREEK FILM FESTIVAL IN BERLIN, 20th – 24th of January 2021





EMERGING GREEKS is the main Competition section of THE GREEK FILM FESTIVAL IN BERLIN. First and second fiction feature length films of the current Greek film production will be presented to the German audience. Emphasis is placed on works that introduce interesting aspects concerning contemporary issues and matters of the Greek reality, as well as perspectives and notions of the Greek society, that will provide the audience in Berlin with different views of Greece than those delivered by the German Media. Thus, by passing the word to the filmmakers and giving space to filmic approaches on the Greek culture, history and last but not least everyday life, EMERGING GREEKS competition wishes to create a communication platform between the two countries in the sense of a non-verbal experience, which will let pictures talk for themselves.
