Short Film Festival Balkans Beyond Borders, Tirana, May 2012‏

Call for submissions for the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival 2012


Balkans Beyond Borders opens the call for submissions for the 3rd edition of Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival.

Celebrating Balkan diversity, multilingualism and communication, the 3rd edition has as title “TALK TO ME”. For one more time young artists up to the age of 30 from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) are invited to create their own short film related to this year’s topic. The submission period runs from the 10th of November until the 1st of April and the festival will take place in Tirana in May 2012.

“TALK TO ME” is a call-to-action for young people to engage actively. It is about communication in all its forms: either through language or other means of expression. The Balkans are known for their culture, traditions and multilingualism so show us the Balkan diversity that surrounds you in your everyday life. Grab your camera and talk to your parents, your friends, your lover, your neighbour, your enemy, talk to the Balkans and talk to the world. Multilingualism & communication are around us and beyond us. Let them inspire you.

So don’t lose time and TALK TO ME

The main objective of the project is to invite and motivate young people to create short films through which they reflect on their region’s past, current and future situation. The aim is to get a better grasp of how they relate to communication in general, as well as to the cultural and linguistic diversity in the region.

More information on how to apply is available on the Balkans Beyond Borders website:, our Facebook page (Balkans Beyond Borders) and Twitter (BalkansBB).
