Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival 2012 with title TALK TO ME- multilingualism and communication opens its doors to all young and creative people as well as everyone passionate about the short film industry from 20 to 22 September 2012 in Tirana at Tirana Ekspres. The 3rd edition of BBB Short Film Festival is a co-organization of Balkans Beyond Borders and Tirana Art Lab. We support all young film makers that put all their film-making energy into building bridges between the peoples of the Balkans.
People from all around Europe are invited to a 3day celebration of Balkan diversity. This year’s festival tackles the topical subject of multilingualism and communication and motivates young people to “TALK TO ME”. “The Balkans are known for their culture, traditions and multilingualism and it is exactly this diversity that we see as an added value, an opportunity to share and exchange our experience.” Young Film Makers from the Balkan region and beyond put all their imagination and creativity and express their viewpoint through the art of Film making.
The film festival will consist of:
1. The competition part in which films by Balkan film makers that tackle the topic of multilingualism and communication will be projected,
2. A crush of German Short Films in which German Films will be projected by the AG Kurzfilm, German Short Film Association and
