Thirty years ago, on September of 1988, when we were just starting as one of the events under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture, on the occasion of the Year of European Cinema and Television, that was announced by the European Committee, Panorama of European Cinema had its eye on the promotion of the European cinema, and mainly the Greek one.

“Why European Cinema?”, was the question on the introduction of our catalogue at the time. “Because, here lie not only our roots, but also the roots of all the films in the world. Here are the Lumiere Brothers, but also the miraculous Méliès, the pioneer creators of Brighton, Zecca and Antre Deed and Max Linder. Here is where “Trip on the Moon” was created, along with “Fantom”, “Nick Carter, Mater Detective” and “Quo Vadis”. Here is where Edwin Porter and David Work Griffith and Charlie Chaplin, got their inspiration. In order to pass the baton to Victor Sestrem and Mauritz Stiller, Fritz Lang and Friedrich Murnau, Sergei Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin, along with the pioneers of the French Avant-garde.”

This is the cinema we wanted to celebrate back then, and this is the cinema we still celebrate all these years, and I hope we will keep celebrating in the future. Its power, its beauty, its amazing history, over the last 120 years, its rich past but also its potentials, the dream that it offers us, a dream that does not put us to sleep –that is what some cinematographies do – but also awakens us, makes us wonder, look for answers and keeps our minds alert. All of the above, combined with our entertainment, of course.
As it was mentioned back then, on the same catalogue of 1988, by Serafim Fintanides, the man who loved and supported the Panorama wholeheartedly, during his time at “Eleftherotipia”: “Some people open radio stations, others program tv channels, some others buy banks, newspapers and magazines. But us, here at “Eleftherotipia”, insist on our old habits… Because, how long will our lives last? “We are made of the same material, dreams are made of”, isn’t that what Prospero says on the “Tempest”? That’s why we chose the DREAM. That being, the cinema.”.

That is, as a matter of fact, the DREAM, that we keep on loving wholeheartedly this year and that offers us a new vision on the contemporary European cinema. The one that we are not used on watching – and the one we should be watching – in the theatres. Films, from countries such as France, Italy, Russia, Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria, Germany, and certainly Greece. But also, a turn back to the roots, its rich history, that being accomplished by the grandiose tribute to Luchino Visconti. It’s a chance to watch again the restored copies of masterpieces such as “Rocco and its Brothers” and “Death in Venice”, along with all the other important films of this major auteur, from his neo-realistic period, with the, now classic, “The Earth Trembles” and “Ossessione”, all the way to his last masterpieces, such as “Conversation Piece” and “The Innocent”.

This year’s schedule, also comprises a tribute to the black and white film, named “The Fascination of Black and White, in Greek and European Cinema”, a tribute that is organized in cooperation with the Greek Film Critics Association (PEKK), with films that were produced and keep being produced over the last decades in black and white film, even though color is inflicted since the 1970s. The same subject, has also been the inspiration of seven new visual artists in the exhibition we are presenting, until the 9th of November, titled “Black Beauty: the Fascination of Black and White in Films”, at STOArt Gallery (in Korai Arcade).

Like every year, the 30th Panorama will include in its program a silent film, screened along with live music. This year, the choice was Griffith’s masterpiece “Intolerance” (1916), which will be screened with its original filters (like the time it was filmed), in Megaron – the Athens Concert Hall. It’s a film that deeply affected cinema over the following decades – being monitored thoroughly by Pudovkin and Eisenstein before filming their own masterpieces. The music is written by Panorama’s regular partner, Nikos Platanos. Last but not least, short films are being represented by films produced by “HORME Pictures” and New York College students, films through which the new talents of our cinema will emerge, at some point in time.

Alienated from urban existence and those who love him, land surveyor Eric travels to a remote and unnamed Irish woodland to assess its suitability for a dubious development project. The place seems to be imbued by an intelligence of sorts. A silhouette flits between trees. The place fascinates the fragmenting Eric as much as it disturbs him. Following in the psychonautic footsteps of the mysterious Devoy, Eric attempts to communicate with his surroundings, but risks becoming a prisoner of a place Without Name.

The directorial debut of Lorcan Finnegan is a solid psychological horror film, a must watch for those tired of the usual tropes of jump scares and gore. The film won the Best Film and Best Director Award in Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.

The film will be screened with english subtitles, also.

Greece nowadays. Seven different stories about seven different people dealing with the aftermath of the Greek crisis. They have already reached their limits and finally fall apart. Despite coming from very dissimilar backgrounds, they are all simultaneously connected by a common last hope: a phone call to the psychological support center called “life line”. As no one can really help them, they all remain just another facet of the contemporary Greek tragedy.

The film was awarded in multiple festivals, such as the 10th London Greek International Film Festival (Best Concept Award for Fiction Feature), while it also won the Best Director Award at the US Maverick Awards. At the same festival, it was also nominated for Best Film and Best Screenplay. Also, it was nominated in the following festivals: 9th Bengaluru International Film Festival in India, 37th Fantasporto (Nominated Directors' Week Award) in Portugal, 9th Paris Panorama of Greek Cinema, 28th Ankara International Film Festival in Turkey, 24th Greek Film Festival in Australia and 11th Los Angeles Greek International Film Festival.

Oleg is a young gifted paramedic. His wife Katya works as a nurse at the hospital emergency department. She loves Oleg, but is fed up with him caring more about patients than her. She tells him she wants a divorce. The new head of Oleg’s EMA department is a cold-hearted manager who’s got new strict rules to implement. Oleg couldn’t care less about the rules – he’s got lives to save; his attitude gets him in trouble with the new boss. The crisis at work coincides with the personal life crisis. Caught up between their patients, alcohol-fueled off-shifts, and an evolving health care system, Oleg and Katya have to find the binding force that will keep them together.

Actor Aleksandr Yatsenko was named Best Actor and the film was nominated for a Crystal Globe in the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival 2017.

ΗΠΑ/ USA, 1916, μ/α / b&w Σκην./ Dir: D.W.Griffith | Σεν./ Scr: D.W.Griffith, Anita Loos | Φωτ./Cin.: G.W. Bitzer | Μοντ./Εd: D.W.Griffith, James Smith, Rose Smith | Μουσ./Mus: Carl Davis | Ηθ./ Cast: Lillian Gish, Mae Marsh, Robert Harron, F.A.Turner| Παρ./ Prod: D.W.Griffith, Triangle Film Corporation, Wark Producing| Διάρκ./ Dur: 164’

Griffith’s epic intercuts examines intolerance and its terrible effects in four historical eras: In ancient Babylon, a mountain girl is caught up in the religious rivalry that leads to the city’s downfall. In Judea, the hypocritical Pharisees condemn Jesus Christ. In 1572
Paris, unaware of the impending St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, two young Huguenots prepare for marriage. Finally, in modern America, social reformers destroy the lives of a young woman and her beloved. “Intolerance” was made partly in response to criticism of Griffith’s previous film, “The Birth of a Nation” (1915), which was criticized as perpetuating racial stereotypes.

The original version of the film will be screened, accompanied by live music.
