13th BBB Short Film Festival
The festival’s theme this year is titled ‘Untiling the mosaic’ and builds upon notions of identity, diversity, inclusivity and visibility. By seeing the world as a mosaic structured with an abundance of tiles which are different to each other, we get the opportunity to observe each tile separately but also in the context of the world’s mosaic. In ‘untiling’, in de-constructing, lies the opportunity to re-structure and re-build the mosaic of our social reality.
Let’s take a closer look at the programme: The Competition programme ‘untiles the mosaic’ with the screening sessions: ‘alone/together’, ‘where do i belong?’, ‘alone in your own decisions’, ‘growing’, ‘work duty’ and ‘diary’. Following the Twin Cities approach we strive to bridge together Bitola in North Macedonia and Athens in Greece, under a special screening segment titled ‘BBB & co: Let’s grow together’, with films from North Macedonia and Greece. In collaboration with Cinedays festival and the Embassy of North Macedonia in Greece, BBB will screen North Macedonian films as well as films co-produced by the Greek Film Center. Alongside those segments, a special screening session & open discussion titled ‘peoples in movement – moving images’ will be held in collaboration with KARPOS and showcases five short films created by young refugee people, who were students in film workshops. Last but not least, the NGO KINITRO will present the ‘living library’ discussion I AM REMARKABLE, inviting 5 remarkable “identities” who will share with us their excellence of existing in our society’s mosaic.
