Balkan Can Kino is a collectively run mobile cinema, lab & film festival, founded by film professionals in 2017 in Athens. 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 organisation of workshops, discussions and lectures, at low cost or completely free of charge.
Up to this point, 4500 films have been submitted to the open call of BCK Film Festival, including shorts and features, fiction, documentaries, experimental and animation. So far, more than 400 films have been screened as part of curated programmes, in various venues in Athens and around Greece.
The Balkan Can Kino Film Symposium is a special event organised each year, during autumn. The Symposium features film screenings, open discussions, projections, art installations and performances by invited film collectives, filmmakers, art practitioners and theorists, who are active and have already presented their work in a variety of locations around Greece and around the world.
