A message from the Artistic Director
of the Short Film Festival in Drama
Mr. Antonis Papadopoulos



The short film proves to be the most mature chronicler of our times.
Its size and duration help in the speed of  capture. But the creative approach of the directors and the talent define this sweet, humanistic "taste" that embraces even the toughest conflicts of life and transforms them into dramatic conflicts that in their majority are treated with boldness.
Overcoming them, however, leads to the continuation in any case, but mainly to the futuristic escape to the future, or to a revolutionary, in my view, return to forgotten values.
Are we in front of a postmodern neo-romanticism?
The sure thing is that in the Greek short film we can trace trends and schools.
But above all, we can see a coherent national cinema!
The current year is significant for the Greek cinema. For the Short Film Festival in Drama, however, it is the most important moment in its history.
It is the moment, emotional for some, of the recognition and justification of a long effort that is now starting to bear fruit.
The partnership with the Hellenic Open University is a novel, groundbreaking by international standards, form of synergy between the cinema and the university community.
The renovated Tobacco Warehouse will soon be a landmark, in terms of both culture and cinema, not only in the Balkans but also in Europe and beyond.
Dear friends, welcome to Drama.
Let us enjoy a film harvest of the highest level, of the cinema that pioneers all kinds of art in Greece.
