"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."

"The Bicentenary anniversary since the outbreak of the Greek Revolution of 1821 -which Greece will be celebrating officially in 2021- brings to fore the universal issue of the struggles for independence, struggles that, as we know, waged throughout the course of time, from antiquity until the present days. The subject of these struggles for freedom and independence, its preparations, the risings and the battles themselves have always been an inspiration to film-makers all over the world.

Among hundreds of films that have commemorated revolutions in the history of cinema -both during the silent and in the sound era- we picked just a few, as a brief taste of what is to follow in the upcoming year: We showcase "Byron: Ballad for a Daemon" by Greek director Nikos Koundouros, "La nuit de Varennes" by Ettore Scola, a story that recounts an incident in the course of the French Revolution, "Allonsanfàn" by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, a film about the failure of one of the Italian uprisings, "Reed, Insurgent Mexico" by Paul Leduc, covering Pancho Villa's struggle for Mexican Independence, and finally Miklós Jancsó's film "Red Psalm" which centers around a small peasants' revolt on the Hungarian plains at the end of the 19th century."
