The festival team would like to thank all the international artists for their sublime artworks. We notice that this year’s theme was created by the need of the directors, poets and video artists to speak about the era we live.
The audience will meet with many art projects dedicated to the movement BLACK LIVES MATTER, will interact with video poems based on anticolonial and Queer ideas, antiracist struggles, the fight against bulling, arogance, neo-liberal mentality. Many short films and video art works are comments on the ecological catastrophe of our era.

It will be a strong festival dedicated to all of you who were very courageous and strong to face the pandemic. We would like to dedicate the festival to the victims of covid-19 and their relatives suffering from the loss of beloved people.

We want also to thank Free Self-Organized Theater Embros in Athens Greece, for the hosting of the festival all these years. We express our solidarity to the struggle of this magnificent occupied theater to continue offering a self-organized, non commercial, liberated space for experimental arts and radical ideas.

All of the best will come as soon as possible.

We wish you happiness and the causes of happiness.
