2nd Corinthian Peloponnesian International Film Festival Awards

Discussion Pannel “Cinematographic Experiences” 12:00-13:00
The last day of the second International Film Festival of Corinth started with a broad discussion between the directors and the audience on Saturday morning. Zachos Samoladas, Elias Demetriou, Thanos Kermitsis, Mark Playne, Oliver Kyr, Vivek Singhania and Vitaly Sumin discussed the art of cimena and the “course’’ of independent producers in cinema theatres. Vivek Singhania, an Indian film producer with an international career in the U.S.A and in Germany, expressed the opinion that the English language is the necessary “key” to the distribution of a film abroad. His opinion was shared by the German director Oliver Kyr, who made his first feature film in English. Can everything, though, be translated? The Greek director Zahos Samoladas, who presented the premiere of the horror film “Dark Legend”, explained that the use of another language would have been impossible for this kind of film. However, as the Greek people that took part in the discussion said, the Greek actors are not willing to “borrow” someone else’s voice. They believe that the voice is one of the most important parts that form their acting persona. The directors and the viewers came to the conclusion that a movie can be regarded as successful when the viewer understands the scenario only from the body language and the rest paralinguistic features.
