The i.P.A.S. Film Festival running for the 3rd Year and presented by The Default Project, is dedicated to the work of film makers from around the world with defiantly independent political and social visions. It is the first political and activist short film festival ever held in Greece.

Our mission is to promote the films of low-budget filmmakers that dissent radically in form or content from the mainstream, challenging the boundaries of the commercial distribution, and to present imaginative works that dare to spark off heated discussions and transcend audience expectations.

    Unfortunately I could not come to iPAS festival, but the communication was great! After the festival Prodromos Trochidis has sent me a very detailed and personalised email regarding my film and the reaction on it during the festival! I was really very touched by this, it is very important for each director to know how the things went, I'm sure. Thanks for the work to all the team! Happy to be a part of this festival!
