will be held from 25/11 to 4/12

through CINESQUARE platform



"Post-Apocalyptic Images of an Uncertain Future"


A brief note from the artistic director of the Festival Ninos Fenek Mikelides:




"The future, as long as cinema is concerned, is not just aliens who come to destroy our planet. It is also a look at a future not so far away, a future not so optimistic, based on what we build today, or to be just, on what we destroy today. A future where climate change, overpopulation, the poisoning of the environment, drought, poverty and unemployment, which lead to uncontrolled immigration, without forgetting the various illnesses and viruses, as well as the existence of some kind of life in other universes, create an uncertain future. A future which, often, the cinema has painted with scary images, in films that create chills but also questions and thoughts about life itself and its essence, in other words, about the need, or not, of mankind. This year's Panorama offers images of such a kind of cinema." – Ninos Fenek Mikelides
