SIX AWARDS THIS YEAR
This year Outview adds two new awards, in addition Best Ntokimanter- Best Film – Audience Award – Best Short Film), :
The first award we have called “Best Activist Film” which will be given a film that, not necessarily is distinguished by it’s cinematic virtues, but that of that the topic will contribute to “educate” society and deserves to be displayed in public places, social institutions and schools and for social actions against homophobia.
The second new award is the “Best Greek Short Film” witch will be decided by the organizing committee of the festival. The Outview Film Festival wants to support the Greek Queer Cinema and annually screens all Greek films submitted to us. The best of the short films are being brought with us when we traveling to international LGBTQI + Film Festival, and distributed through the large network of programmers from other festivals.
This year’s Closing Ceremony / Awards Ceremony (Sunday April 24th at The Greek Film Archive) will be led by the actors John Agelakis and Constantia Christoforidou. The Awards will in turn be presented by famous actors, directors and activists of our community.
The ceremony will be followed by a small reception in foyer of the Greek Film Archive with Brazilian flavors, sponsored by the Brazilian Embassy in Athens.
