• The international section of the Festival will consist of 12 first-time short films primarily from countries of our network.
• For the first time, we will include the screening of feature films by directors whose short films have participated in previous editions of the Festival as to showcase their creative development.
- 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.
We would like to thank all the filmmakers who entrusted IMMF 2019 with their films as well as the members of our selection committee (Youlika Skafida – actress, Robbie Eksiel – journalist/film critic, Alexis Tsafas – director, and Simos Kyparissoulos – the Festival’s founder), who undertook the difficult task of selecting only fifteen of the submitted films. IMMF 2019 participating cities as well as the detailed schedule of the Festival will be announced soon.
