Drama International Short Film Festival is glad to announce the creation of Short Film Hub, with head Yanna Sarri

Short Film Hub hopes to connect talented directors, screenwriters and producers with the international and national film industry.  It will serve as a space of creation, continuous research, and freedom through which new creators will have the chance to get to know renowned film professionals and learn their endless art skills, learn how to promote a film, how to develop a script and how to create a network of contact.

Professional meetings, workshops, seminars, and non-ending discussions will turn Drama International Short Film Festival and its city into the ideal destination for every film professional that loves short films.

According to Yanna Sarri, «the presence of short films from Greece is very strong in the big film festivals all over the world every year. SFH hopes to join forces with the national film world and provide the needed tools for short films to grow even more and get the international attention that they deserve».
