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?
