6th MICRO μ FESTIVAL 2016


The 6th MICROμ has its birthday...

The sixth yearly celebration of "Short" films belongs to history. The venues at the 12 cities of our network after the live connections has turned off their lights on early Sunday morning, refreshing their date with the audience for next year.

Winner was the "beloved" short film "Birthday" by Dimitris Katsimiris, which was selected as first by the audience in almost all cities.

The film describes the birthday of a young boy with cerebral palsy who waits with his mother at their home, his uncle in order to celebrate his 22nd birthday.

The arrival of his uncle though, with his new girlfriend, disrupt the family and creates an unbearable atmosphere. The flowless direction of Dimitris Katsimris as well as the excellent performances of the actors (Thomas Havianidis, Arietta Moutousi, Ilias Valasis, Chrisothemis Amanatidis) were able to touch everyone's souls and offer the first place to the film.

The director and the cast received their award in Athens at Chitirio hand by hand from the founder of the festival , Simos Kyparissopoulos.
