The Thessaloniki International Film Festival shares on its YouTube channel short films by directors from the program Meet the Future

The Thessaloniki International Film Festival continues to bring content that keeps everyone inventive and brings the audience close to Greek cinema, in the unprecedented situation we are all experiencing. During the next few days, we will present, for free, short films by Greek directors that participated in the program Meet the Future of the 60th TIFF, that took place on November 2019. The initiative was a collaboration between TIFF and the Onassis Foundation.


The directors’ short films have been selected in the past five years to participate in the programs of the 13 most notable Film Festivals worldwide (Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Locarno, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastián, London, Rotterdam, New York, Tribeca, Toronto, Sundance, Busan) or they have been nominated for the Academy Awards. The directors have not yet completed their first feature film.


In the next few days, the Festival will present in its YouTube channel, short films by the directors. We want to thank all of them for answering the call to bring their work to the public, during the difficult days of the quarantine. A selection from each director’s filmography will be available on for three days.


The online screenings start tomorrow, Friday, March 27, with the films Calling and I am Mackenzie by Artemis Anastasiadou -who has participated in SXSW and BFI London Film Festival among others.
