2nd MICRO μ FESTIVAL 2012


The 2nd Micro μ Festival was successfully held on Saturday, October 6, in Athens, Thessaloniki and Rhodes. The attendance exceeded all expectations creating a special atmosphere in all three cities.

In Athens, due to the large number of spectators who had gathered earlier outside the theater "Dipylon", the organizers decided to also screen the films in a second hall.

For more than three hours all you could hear applause coming from the halls, while, during the breaks, the foyer of the theater and sidewalks flooded by comments, discussions and predictions for the winner.

After the end of the screenings in all three cities, the voting process followed. In Athens, the evening closed with the assembled spectators in "white room" of the theater for the announcement of the results, done with live connections among the cities.

Favorite movie of the 2nd Micro μ Festival was the "Vault of Ideas" by Katerina Konstantopoulou. The festival ended with a lot of fun, music and the commitment of the organizers that following fall even more "Greece" would be invited to their 'small' fest.

SYNOPSIS

The era we live in is not characterized by a particular idealism. Most people, in front of daily life problems or in chase of profit and success, easily lose their sensitivity to social groups who need support. The recognition of the rights of people with special needs (SEN) is an indisputable constitutional right of every civilized society.
