A message from the Chairman of the Cultural Organisation
Short Film Festival in Drama
Mr. Anestis Terzis
Just as the family is the cell of society, so the people of a city are the cell of the nation. At a difficult period for all of us, the city and the municipality of Drama prove that Culture is too precious to be left to its fate.
In a period of overall decline, with culture being the first "luxury" to be cut back, Drama continues investing in the fresh blood of the greek cinema for a whole 38 years.
We take the cinematic and cultural tradition of this town further, by strengthening even more the international character of the Festival this year. In this way our city grows in the global map, bringing to our country positive international publicity at a time that it only gets negative publicity…
I would like to thank all those who worked for the festival, the Ministry of Culture, our sponsors and, mainly, the young people who trusted the big family of the people of Drama as their starting point.
