PDSFF24 Love & Revolt concluded in a theatre full of people and emotion

44 films and hundreds of spectators highlighted possible and unlikely facets of love and revolt as well as the connections between them

Four days of screenings, discussions and celebration concluded on Sunday night. Along with the screening in Athens, the PDSFF traveled to Berlin and Istanbul where we presented and discussed with the audience distinguished films of this year’s event. In the presence of filmmakers from Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Germany, France, England, Portugal, Belgium, Scotland, Argentina and Canada, the Athenian audience shared feelings and ideas about cinema, politics, love.

For one more year, the festival strived to coordinate with daily life and concerns of the Athenian community. We postponed the Friday morning screening to attend the march against the establishment of private universities and the violation of the constitution while, in view of March 8, Mel Kalfanti, festival coordinator, moderated the discussion-sharing: “Collective memory, personal testimonies: between mourning and assertion” with: Rhea Valden, Brickena Gisto, Zoe Kokka and Maria Louka. On Sunday, in support of the initiative “Filmmakers for Palestine – Greece”, we organised a special screening in solidarity with the Palestinian people free of charge.
