Balkan movies on the palms of your hands. The battle with Hollywood blockbusters may commence. Balkon3 presents you the film and video platform altcine, a project fully and undoubtedly dedicated to promotion of Balkan cinematography. Organizing internet festivals, news and information of the film sphere, articles, reviews and critics are only a part of altcine’s activities. Without doubt altcine’s greatest success is that it managed to gather useful information for 1034 film titles and 8244 actors and filmmakers from the Balkans in its 2 year of existence in its internet film library. Of course, these numbers will continue to grow.

Altcine is a platform founded in 2011 by Electra Venaki. Actors, producers, film technicians, as well as the film industry as a whole have a place to communicate and keep in touch with their audience and share their common interests with the goal to promote film and video productions from all of the Balkan countries to the World. Film fans from all around the world have the chance to look to cinematography and cinema from an entirely another perspective. Altcine’s mission is to preserve the cultural differences and diversities between the people, to educate new audiences and to open new corridors for the professionals and artists in a multicultural and multiethnic environment.

In 2012, for its first anniversary, altcine presented altcineAction!, the first online festival for short films organized especially for the Balkan filmmakers.
