PRESS RELEASE September 27, 2018

 

The international film festival Bridges will open the stage for the 9th consecutive year on October 4th -13th. It will take place in Corinth (Cineplex Floisvos: 4-10 of October), in Athens (Greek Film Archives – Teniothiki Greece: 8-10 of October) and Nafplion (Theater Trianon: 11-13 of October). The film festival will give a chance to filmmakers from all over the globe to present their work to the Greek audience.

The film festival began in 2008 in Corinth. In a short period of time, Bridges has become known for being the starting point for the careers of many young people with regional screenings and successful celebrations in all of Greece. The first goal of the festival is to promote the region where it takes place. The second goal is to promote relationships with local communities and cultural institutions. During the festival we will screen feature films from all over the world in the category: Bridges—International Cinema. At the end in Nafplion on the 13th of October, we award the Golden Pegasos award in directing, screenwriting, music, set design and costumes, first and second male and female roles and many more. We honor films about refuges in the thematic category: The Other. The Bridges Film Festival will continue to present films from directors in the Diaspora under the category: Nostimon Imar. The Festival will present films with a woman director or producer. The Festival lunches a new category of films: 50/50 with factors 50% men and 50% women so that we can have equal amounts of films produced and directed by men and women. This idea reflects harmony and balance in the participants and the ideas that are presented. We add to the cineplexes the welcoming and atmospheric film room B at Teniothiki in Athens for the days 11-13 of October.

The VIP Jury Committee for the Golden Pegasos feature film prize in the category Bridges-World Cinema consists of Cinema and art experts from Greece and all over the globe. This year we have Hollywood Director of Photography Bill Butler ( whose projects include Jaws by Steven Spielberg, 1975; Grease, 1978; Rocky II, 1979; Rocky III, 1983, Rocky, 1985; and many more); James DeMetro – Director of the Hellenic Film Society USA; the Indian Producer Vivek Singhania; the American Producer George F Roberson (Jose—Queer Lion Award, 2018), Kiki Pericleous—Journalist at the Cyprian News Channel and the founding member of the section Women in Cinema and TV Cyprus; finally, Elizabeth Chronopoulou director, writer, producer and film editor.

The program consists of film screenings, a seminar masterclass with the theme: The art of acting from production to editing with E. Chronopoulou, and concerts with Christina Golia joined by local bands.

Finally, we call for volunteers as well as artists and film lovers to participate in the independent jury committee of the Bridges Film Festival for the short films and documentaries. For information and show of interest please contact corinthfest at gmail.com
