"Thank you very much Yiannis personally and the entire creative team of the HIGHLY SUBVERSIVE TiSFF festival"...
Pavlos Vissariou, director of multi-awarded film NOSTOS 😍

a short review for perhaps the most exciting short film festival :
"What is is about TiSFF that sets it apart from other short film festivals around the world?
a daring, risk-taking, boundary-pushing curating that discovers new and showcases established film artists, all of whom precipitate the collapse of social prejudices and prefabricated notions of what the body, the city, gender, emotions, future or even art is.

Since 2007 in Thessaloniki, and highly focused on cutting-edge shorts cinema that indeed advance the art of cinema.

Shorts initially screened in TiSFF have reached prestigious festival as nominees and very often winners, CEZAR awards, OSCARS, EFA etc. etc.

    Thess International Shorts Festival is a stunner. It was wonderful to be included, (and awarded ) amongst the most incredible selection of films. The programme is startling, with a huge variety of genres and emotional range . All the films have that X factor and leave you falling in love with the tricky short film genre. The communication and hospitality from afar was brilliant, inclusive and fun. Yiannis and team love film and the film-makers feel appreciated and recognized in a warm way, so welcome and rare in 2021 with so much separation and stress. Thank you Thessaloniki I will get there one day !!

    So great to have participated in such a dynamic and diverse programming of shorts! TiSFF is evolving to THE short film festival in Greece, giving voice to so many creators and this is something to thank for. But, foremost, it selects so many powerful stories which makes it a festival not to be missed, by creators and audience alike. The communication with the festival has also been great all during the festival.
    Thank you for the opportunity to show my first short in my homeland and for the distinction, all this is truly appreciated. Fotis Zampetakis
