“Living in… “City-mmetry”: Geometrical representations and urbanism”

Until the 10th of July young film makers from the Balkan region and beyond can send their films for the 6th BBB Short Film Festival under the title “Living in… “City-mmetry”: Geometrical representations and urbanism”. They want the best representation of all Balkan countries in the Festival, at this stage specially looking forward to films from Albania, FYROM and Montenegro without excluding films from other Balkan countries.

This year BBB gets inspired by the city, the urban life and the geometrical representations identified in it.

Every day, we draw our personal route among the city’s blocks designing our own reality.
Every city has its shapes: blocks and buildings, streets and parks but also empty spaces that reflect symmetries, asymmetries, geometries, order and disorder
Every city has its flows: we meet and get separated, connect and disconnect transforming the balance of our relationships
Every city is a mirror: changes, synergies, anonymity, abandonment, all reflected in the city’s facades
Every city is a point of reference: a common space for multiple identities that develop and get defined by historical, urban, political and societal memories
Our Cities are here beyond borders, history and social changes. They constitute our environment, they are our stories

Let the city and the geometrical representations you identify inspire you and share with us your story of “City-mmetry”.

The 6th Edition of Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival will take place in Thessaloniki in October 2015.

After five successive years, BBB gives the opportunity one more time to the next generation of film makers to create, share and present their films, meet and collaborate. They invite young artists up to the age of 35 from the Balkan region and beyond to get inspired by this year’s topic and send their short film. The festival accepts all type of film genres with duration up to 30 minutes. The main objective of BBB is to motivate young people to make use of their creativity in order to reflect on issues of concern in their region.
