“Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival” is an annual thematic Film Festival that takes place in a different Balkan city each year. It celebrates Balkan diversity and engages audience and creators to reflect on pressing contemporary issues through the medium of short film. The festival is framed by other cultural events like photo exhibitions, visual art events, master classes, live bands, networking events.

In 2019, it celebrates its 10th Edition in Athens in October 2019 (exact dates will be announced in July). The 10th Edition of Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival builds upon the thematic "e-motions"

Our world is an open space where knowledge, memories, experiences and sentiments are transmitted and accommodated translocally. Motion can bring change and emotions to our life. we invite all artists to turn their mood on “e-motion” mode and share with us their short film.

We accept all film genres with duration up to 30 minutes focusing on fiction, animation, experimental and documentary shorts, as well as digital arts by film makers up to the age of 35 inspired by the topic. If the participant is not from the Balkan region the production can be Balkan or the film to refer to the Balkans. 
Submission Fee is set because we want to invite as many film makers as possible and offer them the best treatment. So, by submitting you assist in film makers' mobility and this is important for our Festival.

BBB gives the opportunity to the next generation of film makers to create, share and present their films, meet and collaborate. The main objective of BBB is to motivate young people to make use of their creativity in order to reflect on issues of concern in their region.
