Ποιοι ειμαστε | About


(GR)

 Το  Balkan Can Kino  είναι ένα συνεργατικό σινεμά, εργαστήριο & φεστιβάλ κινηματογράφου, που ιδρύθηκε από επαγγελματίες του κινηματογράφου, το 2017 στην Αθήνα και φιλοξενείται στο ισόγειο του Communitism. Ο προγραμματισμός των ταινιών εστιάζει στις εναλλακτικές προσεγγίσεις στον κινηματογράφο και την οπτικοακουστική τέχνη, με σκοπό να ανδείξει την διαφορετικότητα στο σινεμά. Παράλληλα, προσφέρει κινηματογραφική εκπαίδευση με την οργάνωση εργαστηρίων, συζητήσεων και διαλέξεων, με χαμηλό κόστος ή εντελώς δωρεάν.
 Το BCK Film Festival | Edition 2019 πραγματοποιείται από τον Ιανουάριο ως το Νοέμβριο του 2019. Μέσα από εβδομαδιαίες προβολές και ειδικά αφιερώματα φιλοξενούνται ανεξάρτητα και diy έργα που παρουσιάζουν διαφορετικές κουλτούρες και κοινότητες, πρωτοεμφανιζόμενους σκηνοθέτες, γυναίκες σκηνοθέτιδες και queer κινηματογράφο.
 Το BCK Mobile Kino | Edition 2019 ταξιδεύει εντός και εκτός Ελλάδος και παρουσιάζει μέρος του προγράμματος προβολών αλλά και διοργανώνει εργαστήρια για ενήλικες και παιδιά.
 Όνειρο μας είναι να δημιουργήσουμε ένα δίκτυο συνεργασίας και αλληλοϋποστήριξης ανάμεσα σε κινηματογραφιστές, οργανισμούς και φορείς που δραστηριοποιούνται σε τοπικό και διεθνές επίπεδο. Το εγχείρημα είναι ανοικτό σε όσες και όσους ενδιαφέρονται να μας γνωρίσουν και να συμμετέχουν ή θέλουν να συνεργαστούν μαζί μας.

* Εντός του χώρου δεν επιτρέπεται το κάπνισμα. H αίθουσα είναι προσβάσιμη σε αμαξίδια. Δυστυχώς, δεν υπάρχει προσβάσιμη τουαλέτα.

Balkan Can Kino is a collectively run cinema, lab & film festival, founded by film professionals in 2017 in Athens and hosted on the ground floor of Communitism. Film programming focuses on alternative approaches to cinema and audiovisual art in order to showcase diversity. At the same time, it offers film education with the organization of workshops, discussions and lectures, at low cost or completely free of charge.

HIGH RISE - Photography Exhibition

Η έκθεση του Stéphane Charpentier, που είχε προγραμματιστεί κατά τη διάρκεια του Συμποσίου, δυστυχώς ακυρώνεται για λόγους ανωτέρας βίας. Ευχαριστούμε για την κατανόηση το ενδιαφερόμενο κοινό και ευχόμαστε στον Stéphane τα καλύτερα για μια γρήγορη ανάρρωση. Ελπίζουμε να έχουμε την ευκαιρία να φιλοξενήσουμε την έκθεση σύντομα στο μέλλον.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the exhibition "High Rise" by Stéphane Charpentier has to be cancelled. Both Balkan Can Kino team and the photographer are really sorry. We wish to our friend Stéphane Charpentier a speedy recovery and we hope to be able to do the exhibition in the near future.
