Micro μ Festival, is the fastest-growing independent short film festival in Greece.
What makes this one-day festival unique is the fact that it takes place in different cities around Greece and the world on the same day and time. It thus gives the ability to its audience to connect, through simultaneously watching the 15 pre-selected films in real time and then voting for their favourite.
Micro μ festival’s ambition has been to promote the short film genre to a wider audience, especially in rural areas of Greece and selected cities abroad. Micro μ aims to unite culturally diverse audiences all over the globe through internationally highlighting the work of short filmmakers
The festival has had a great impact to the Greek audience so far. Since 2011, when it was first launched in Athens, requests to include new cities in its network have greatly increased. So far, the festival has managed to raise the number of participating cities in approximately two per year, recently reaching a network of fifteen screening locations in Greece and abroad.
The festival awards the audiences' “favourite film” with a statuette.
The first and second winner films receive prize packages from sponsors for equipment and post production services for their next productions.
