NEWS * Aug.20, 2022
Due to the rising number Covid cases officially reported, and most all cinephiles in Thessaloniki refusing to take the risk of being in a closed cinema for our 3-4 hour programs, we have decided to go digital on-line, from 2 to 16 October in the DIMITRIA Arts Festival platform. In the same loved program as in 2020 and 2021 .
This, will enable cinephiles to watch even all 99 gems of our program, or watch again a film that impressed them, as each daily program will stay on-line for a whole week.
We will not "sacrifice" such beautiful cinema for the very few , and going digital means promoting quality cinema to at least 15,000 viewers.
Never forgetting the big screen and Covid permitting, we are already planning an even in late November or early January, with a beautiful selection from our 2022 program.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the 16th edition of TiSFF will take place mid-October on the big screen of the MARKETAKI CINEMA in the Port of Thessaloniki, next to the Aegean Sea, facing Mount Olympus and the most beautiful sunsets in the Mediterrean ! *** ( COVID permitting of course !!!)

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.

Important :

This is of definite advantage to all directors as it extends the audience and the appreciation of the director's cinematic work !
