Festival Description: 

DRAMA International Short Film Festival is one of the world’s oldest short film festivals! For 45 years, filmmakers from around the world are connecting near the picturesque springs in the center city of Drama, in Greece. It’s the most important gathering place for the Greek filmmakers, who the last years are excelling at the international film festivals! During the DISFF44, the festival took place both in a physical and an online version. The short film competition programs (National, International, Short and Green, Animation & Student), were presented in 4 Venues: at the “Olympia” Cinema, at the newly-renovated Open-Air Cinema “Alexandros”, at the Municipal Conservatory of Drama, and at the new Drive-In Cinema. Online, the DISFF-Platform reached more than 230.0000 unique visits and in the 2020 highlight was the head-jury of the International Competition: the Polish Oscar winning director Pawel Pawlikowski!
