Open - Air Screenings: Balkan Vox. II | Fr. 08.06.2018 International Fiction | Fr. 15.05.2018 Locatola - Screening & Live Music | Fr. 22.06.2018 Closing Event | Fr. 08.07.2018 POP-UP : Our Festival 4, 31.07.2018


Το  Balkan Can Kino  είναι ένα συνεργατικό κινηματογραφικό εγχείρημα που ξεκίνησε το 2017 στην Αθήνα και φιλοξενείται στο ισόγειο του Communitism.
Κάθε Παρασκευή, από τον Δεκέμβριο του 2017 μέχρι τον Ιούνιο του 2018, προβάλλονται ταινίες σύγχρονης, ανεξάρτητης παραγωγής του ελληνικού και παγκόσμιου κινηματογράφου.
Στο πρόγραμμά μας έχουν κατατεθεί πάνω από 3000 ταινίες. Ταινίες μυθοπλασίας, ντοκιμαντέρ και πειραματικές, -μικρού και μεγάλου μήκους, που δεν εστιάζουν τόσο στον Ευρωπαϊκό Κινηματογράφο αλλά παρουσιάζουν διαφορετικές κοινότητες και κουλτούρες.
Μετά τις προβολές του σύγχρονου ελληνικού κινηματογράφου, πραγματοποιείται Q&A, με τους συντελεστές των ταινιών.
Παράλληλα στον χώρο διοργανώνονται εκπαιδευτικά σεμινάρια, αναλύσεις ταινιών, συζητήσεις και εξωτερικά κινηματογραφικά φεστιβάλ.
Το εγχείρημα είναι ανοικτό σε όσες και όσους ενδιαφέρονται να μας γνωρίσουν και να συμμετέχουν ή θέλουν να συνεργαστούν μαζί μας, γι αυτό κάθε Παρασκευή, 20.00 - 21.00, πραγματοποιείται  Ανοιχτή Συνάντηση Κινηματογραφιστών. 
Μέσω των συναντήσεων, όνειρό μας είναι να δημιουργήσουμε ένα δίκτυο αλληλεγγύης και υποστήριξης μεταξύ των καλλιτεχνών που δραστηριοποιούνται στην Αθήνα.

*O χώρος είναι προσβάσιμος σε αμαξίδια.

Balkan Can Kino is a space created to showcase new filmmakers and indie filmmaking, hosted at Communitism, an art project aiming to motivate community structures into activating abandoned cultural heritage buildings in Athens.
In a series of screenings and discussions we would like to bring the work of new filmmakers -local and international- to the audience of Athens.

Please read carefully before submitting:

How do we choose films?
Our programme wants to highlight diversity in cinema and showcase films from different communities. We want our films to represent different cultures, to move away from a focus solely on Hollywood or European cinema. We focus on socio political issues but we are open to all genres and we accept submissions all year long.

If your film is chosen.
Connecting filmmakers with the audience and the filmmakers of the local community is really important to us, so we would love to host you in Athens during the screening of your film. Unfortunately we cannot cover any travel costs.

How do we work?
Have in mind that this is a self organised project. Any film chosen, will be screened at least one month after selection. We are happy to answer to any question you have via email, which usually takes 2-5 working days. Screenings take place every Friday evening. Also if your film is chosen, it could be screened in one of our events.

What is our aim?

We would like to create a place for filmmakers to co-exist, co-create and share knowledge. Our goal is to screen a feature film or a collection of shorts following a Q&A, every Friday evening at our space and hold workshops, round tables, discussions and video art sessions on weekdays and weekends. In addition, we are in the first stages of creating the first self organised film school in Athens, following Berlin's filmArche.

To submit your film, please fill out the following form.

Film Submission or submit via FilmFreeway (closed for this season, use our form if you wish to apply)

Are you interested in collaborating with us to organise an event?
We are happy to hear your suggestions about events via email, you will get our response in a period of two weeks. We are open to fundraising events to support any stage of your film production. Have in mind that we are unable to host parties and last minute ideas, so please send your event suggestion at least one month earlier before the date that you want your event to happen.

** Wheelchair accessible space.
