6th Balkan Can Kino Film Symposium
The Balkan Can Kino Film Symposium takes place in Athens every autumn and for about ten days, under a single theme, it presents curated film programmes by BCK members or by guest curators from independent and acclaimed film festivals, together with artistic installations, discussion panels and workshops. All Symposium activities are always free of charge to the public and are carried out in collaboration with artists, artistic and social groups and organisations.
This years theme is KINO LUDENS and through a series of screenings, artistic installations, workshops and parallel events, the Symposium will focus on the presence and the importance of the element of play in the multiple layers of adulthood and everyday life, showcasing interactivity in cinema, not necessarily through new technologies, but through the meaning of game/play in the creation of a cinematic work and its importance in every stage of the production. Moreover, the parallel events will be structured in a way to educate and inform participants about various cultural and social issues through interactive games for adults, teenagers and children.
