Innovative as always, the 4th Independent Political Activism Short Film Festival returns.

This year we have selected (60) sixty remarkable films from (20) twenty different countries such as Italy, India, Brazil, Iran, Lebanon, United Kingdom, Greece, United States, France, Belgium, France, Morocco, Spain, Ukraine, Denmark, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Portugal, Turkey, Croatia.

All the films deal with current political issues, such as social inequalities, diversity, domestic violence, racism, etc, in three film categories, fiction, documentary and animation.

IPAS, like every other year, supports the work of students, therefore in the screening of 2021 will be featured 15 exceptional student films.

The international pandemic of Covid changed our lives so we have to find new ways of expression.

Therefore, this year’s edition will take place as a hybrid event.
It will start on March 26-30 online and if the conditions allow, it will have screenings in the physical space of KOTESxBOOZE (57 Kolokotroni Street, Athens, Monastiraki), at the same period.

    Great communication, a pretty organized screening and an extremely friendly staff were my personal experience with this festival. Given the fact that this was only the third edition, I think the festival is one of a kind and has the potential to become even bigger in next years. Penia and Artemis are equally professional and good-humored; a combination sometimes rare to find. Thank you i.P.A.S for everything!
