Psarokokalo: Audiovisual experiments

New and past technologies lie at the heart of a film festival presenting new audiovisual productions which explore novel approaches in cinema, image, rhythm and narration. The Second International Short Film Festival Psarokokalo kicks off tonight at the screening hall of downtown hotspot Nixon, running to February 10. The program includes 65 short films – including fiction, documentaries and animation – by Greek and international directors, tributes to Romanian and Basque cinema, short films by Swedish director Roy Andersson as well as special screenings of selections from the Salford Film Festival and the HollyShorts Film Festival. Parallel events include an interactive performance, «Patakouna,» on February 5 and 6, an art exhibition and a closing party scheduled for February 8 at Soul Stereo.
