The Greek delegation, consisted of Dionysia Kopana (director),Thanasis Koutrafouris and Ilias Dimakopoulos (young filmmakers) returned from Sweden having gained a wealth of new knowledge and experience.
Τhey had the unique chance to participate to the International Film Workshop ” FILM DAYS AT VBU” that took place from February 17-22 in Ludvika. The workshop was organized by the Swedish Educational Centre VBU.
Within this week, 30 students from Sweden, Croatia, Germany, Ireland and Greece were divived into for groups and created 4 short films.
This educational trip was organized by Olympia International Film Festival and Camera Zizanio.
The two young filmmakers are sharing their impressions:
- First of all I would like to thank the ancient Olympia festival for giving me the opportunity to travel to Sweden and represent Greece. Within this week I worked with many people from different countries around the world with the common goal of making a film. Aside from the knowledge I received, I met many people with great ideas and made many new friends that changed the way I view cinema. From this trip I have only been left with positive impressions and received a lot of knowledge and experience. Finally, I would like to thank my retirees, Mrs Dionysia Kopana and Elias Dimakopoulos.
- It was a unique experience for me! I ‘d like to thank Olympia International Film Festival that chose me and gave me the opportunity to find myself in Ludvika, Sweden. We had an amazing time all together, we became friends and we did a great job. We shared beautiful moments which I believe none of us will ever forget. I made new friends from different countries and we promised to meet again in Greece. Swedes are very hospitable and they treated us very well. I ‘d also like to thank my travel mates Mrs Dionysia Kopana as well as my friend Thanasis Koutrafouris, who were always by my side.
