3rd MICRO μ FESTIVAL 2013


The 3rd Micro μ Festival – bigger and stronger than ever – belongs to history from now on.

In a night we laughed, cried, moved.The appointment was set months ago, the enthusiasm was extremely high. Athens, Thessaloniki, Rhodes, Ptolemaida and Chania presented the festival films and then voted "Travel Express" of Natassa Xidi as the "favorite" movie of the 3rd Micro μ Festival. The director was applauded during the award in Athens.

The film, dealing with a very sensitive and tender way issues of multiculturalism and social prejudices, recites the adventures of a young girl, Margaret, who loses the ship for Paros for her summer holidays, but she ends up traveling farther.

Closing the cinematic night, the organizers renewed the appointment for the next fall with more «Micro μ»!
