Focus on Greece: Europa Distribution examines the independent film distribution situation in the country
by Jesús Silva
Εuropa Distribution continues its tour around Europe, in order to shed some light on the situation of independent film distribution across the continent. After their recent articles on countries such as Russia and Lithuania, Iceland and the UK, they headed south to report on the individual aspects of the Greek market, and the challenges faced by its professionals. The members of Europa Distribution operating in the Hellenic Republic offered a common portrait of a highly competitive market, which has undergone significant changes due to the impact of the last economic crisis in 2008. A large number of releases, a great sensitivity to the weather, a limited amount of windows and a constant search for new business models are just some of the main traits of the film distribution market in Greece.Read more

A report by Film & Campaign
The idea of a ‘virtual screening room’ – when ‘event cinema’ goes online.
In 2018, Moving Docs continued to explore concepts for what we first described as a ‘virtual screening room’ – an online space that replicates the experience of watching a film jointly with others, and that facilitates the remote participation in an on-site event,
for example through interaction in a debate following a documentary screening.
Art as a mediator of communication - Interview with the Ukrainian artist Alevtina Kakhidze following the screening of The Distant Barking of Dogs
As a part of the Travelling Docudays UA, in cooperation with the Biennale of Trust in Lviv, the festival held a screening of The Distant Barking of Dogs and a discussion attended by Alevtina Kakhidze. In her art, the artist, just like the film’s director Simon Lereng Wilmont, addresses the experience of a person who lives in the occupied territories. For example, in her project The Story of Klubnika Andreyevna, or Zhdanovka, Alevtina uses texts and images to speak about her mother’s life. She also works with children as a tolerance ambassador for the UN Development Programme in towns and cities near the separation line, establishing dialogue in the language of art. Before the film screening, we talked about trust, experience and tolerance.
Docudays UA is a unique international film festival about human rights, that runs almost all year long. It launches in the last week of March in the capital Kyiv, and operates from October to December with the Traveling Festival. Docudays UA works on the edge of civil society activism, art and culture in Ukraine and has several core goals: bringing global documentaries to Ukrainian citizens; bringing Ukrainian documentaries to global citizens; contributing to the level of observance of human rights in Ukraine and developing the critical thinking among their audience. Get to know more about the Moving Docs Ukrainian partner Docudays UA with Julia Kartashova.
