International Competition 2023

46th Drama International Short Film Festival

This year too, the team of the International Competition Program, led by Head Programmer, Yorgos Zois, brings you films from as many as thirteen countries from around the world, a selection of shorts that stood out at international festivals, as well as captivating world premieres. It is a cluster of films that dare to experiment and playfully fuse different filmic styles and tones, delivering a wealth of narrative forms blending reality with fiction, personal stories with collective memories. These films are made on the alluring components of a poignant arthouse cinema, which gives them their distinct identity: as such, we believe they must be supported and screened to audiences, like a form of resistance that bolsters thinking and reaches the depth of our emotions.
