IMMF 2019 - SPECIAL TRIBUTE


The International Micro μ Festival 2019 will host for the fourth time a Special Tribute entitled "Micro Future: Technologies of tomorrow "on Friday October 11th, 2019, at the Michalis Cacoyannis Foundation.

As part of the Festival, the Special Tribute aims to inform the public on issues of society from a cinematic perspective. Specifically, the Special Tribute consists of two parts: a presentation of the topic, followed by screenings of short films consistent with our theme.

This year, wanting to approach in more depth the cinema process from start to end, we organized a presentation entitled “Technology & cinema” in which distinguished professionals in their field of work will inform us on innovative practices developed internationally and on the ways filmmakers/creators can use them in their line of work.

The presentation is oriented on three axes::

● how technology contributes in the film production process

● on the technological innovations in the field of film screenings

● on the social aspect of cinema

These topics cover the whole spectrum of the seventh art and they will give food for thought to participants either from the cinema field or not.

The main speakers are:

Michalis Charalambidis - Director

Nikolas Drizis - Msc Computer Animation/ Art Director

Vera Arma - Director of ARTIS Project

The presentation will be followed by the screenings of eight short films as part of the Special Tribute (with Greek subtitles).

The tribute “Micro Future: Technologies of Tomorrow” is implemented through the Operational Program "Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning" and is co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund) and National Funds. Its co-funded projects deal mostly with the improvement of education and employment in Greece. Its main targets relate to the development and promotion of human resources skills, activities against unemployment, strengthen social cohesion and social inclusion of vulnerable social groups, improvement of the quality of education & lifelong learning, awareness on environmental education, linking education with the labor market.

The film tribute has free admission and it’s accessible to disabled people.
