Shedding light to the Balkans
12 August 2015
share info
We are proud to announce that altcine and the Greek Society of Cinematographers (GSC), launch this year for the first time the “Lighting the Balkans” three-day screenings in the frame of the cultural activities hosted by the most important event of the North Greece, the Olympus Festival.  

For three days, the 23, 24 and 25 of August we will present to the Greek and international audience five movies from the Balkans focused on Directors of Photography.  Tourists and locals are invited to discover two, relatively unknown to the wide audience, aspects of cinema: Directors of Photography and Balkan productions.

Five Balkan feature films will be screened in the city of Katerini, at the Efkarpidis cinema, while Greek cinematographers will discuss with the audience films and the art of cinematography. 
DOP΄s, Olympia Mytilinaiou, Ilias Adamis, Yorgos Frentzos, among others, founder Electra Venaki, along with the University of the Aegean professor, Yannis Skopeteas, will join the event and they will talk about cinematography in Greek cinema.

This significant collaboration aims at establishing an annual Balkan film festival for Cinematographers as a common ground for the exploration of our neighborhood΄s filmmaking heritage. 

We believe that the Balkan Peninsula, this part of Europe with low audiovisual production capacity is a terrain of innovative solutions, unique workflows and a plethora of awarded films, ready to be discovered. 
The Balkan cinematographers΄ lighting and framing will engage the international audience into a discussion  about the cinema of this “other Europe”, building new bridges of communication. Tributes, workshops, master classes and special prizes will complete this ambitious project. 

A unique festival is born!
