Call for entries

The Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival 2011



In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film

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?


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.


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.


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


beyond Borders (BBB), a non- profit organization, intends to promote
cooperation in the Balkans and encourage  young artists to reflect on
current political and economical issues in their region.  


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.
