Ευρωπαϊκή Συνάντηση Νεανικής Οπτικοακουστικής Δημιουργίας

Category Archives: ΝΕΑ

You cannot restrict young audiovisual creation!

“Last year has deprived us of several activities we were practicing delightfully, let alone those including art creation. It would be impossible though to remain idle and inactive during that period. Through the activities  that the Olympia Film Festival for Children and Young People and Camera Zizanio always offered, we took the opportunity to create art with instruments and media in full compliance with this covid era.

Our participation in the international online film workshop “Film Days at VBU 2021” engaged us with youngsters from other countries, exchanging ideas but also roles in this occasion. Every national team took footage from another one and added its own touch to the creation of a short film about COVID.

This experience reminded us once more that facemasks won’t prevent us from collaborating with different people and cultures to create art.”

This is the text of the greek team that took part in the online film workshop “Film days at VBU”  that took place in April 2021. Within 5 days, 8 groups of youngsters 15 to 20 years old from Germany, Greece, Ireland, Croatia and Sweden created 10 short films about COVID-19.

The greek team consisted of : Lampis Zezas, Polyxeni Konstantinou, Dionysia Bertsatou,  Alexandra Bertsatou and Mary Panagiotopoulou. A former Zizanio, Anastasia Drakopoulou, was coordinating the project.

This hybrid film workshop was organised from Swedish Educational Center VBU in collaboration with 4 Festival members of Youth Cinema Network, Camera Zizanio (Greece), Fresh Film Festival (Ireland) FiSH – Festival im StadtHafen (Germany) and Four River Film Festival (Croatia).

‘Οταν η νεανική οπτικοακουστική δημιουργία δεν περιορίζεται!

“Ο τελευταίος χρόνος είναι γνωστό πως μας έχει στερήσει αρκετές από τις ασχολίες που κάναμε με ενθουσιασμό, πόσο μάλλον αυτές που αφορούν την τέχνη. Ωστόσο θα ήταν αδύνατο να παραμείνουμε άπρακτοι και αδρανείς καθ’ όλη αυτή τη διάρκεια. Μέσα λοιπόν από δραστηριότητες που μας προσέφερε πάντα το Φεστιβάλ Κινηματογράφου Ολυμπίας για Παιδιά και Νέους και η Camera Zizanio, βρήκαμε την ευκαιρία να δημιουργήσουμε με μέσα που ταυτίζονται με τις απαιτήσεις της εποχής του κορονοϊού. Συμμετέχοντας στο διεθνές διαδικτυακό κινηματογραφικό εργαστήριο “Film Days at VBU 2021”  ήρθαμε σε επαφή με άλλες χώρες διαδικτυακά, ανταλλάξαμε ιδέες αλλά και ρόλους αυτή τη φορά. Κάθε χώρα δέχθηκε υλικό από κάποια άλλη και έδωσε την δίκη της πινελιά για την δημιουργία ενός μικρού βίντεο με θέμα τον κορονοϊό.

Η εμπειρία αυτή μας υπενθύμισε για μια ακόμη φορά πως οι «μάσκες» δεν θα μας εμποδίσουν να συνεργαστούμε με διαφορετικούς ανθρώπους και πολιτισμούς για να δημιουργήσουμε.”

Αυτές είναι οι εντυπώσεις της ελληνικής ομάδας που συμμετείχε στο διαδικτυακό κινηματογραφικό εργαστήριο“Film days at VBU”  που πραγματοποιήθηκε τον Απρίλιο του 2021. Μέσα σε 5 μέρες, 8 ομάδες νέων (15- 20 ετών) από τη Γερμανία, την Ελλάδα, την Ιρλανδία, την Κροατία και τη Σουηδία δημιουργησαν  10 ταινίες μικρού μήκους με θέμα τον COVID -19.

H ελληνική ομάδα αποτελούνταν από τα Ζιζάνια: Λάμπη Ζέζα, Πολυξένη Κωνσταντίνου, Διονυσία Μπερτσάτου, Αλεξάνδρα Μπερτσάτου και Μαίρη Παναγιωτοπούλου. Τον συντονισμό του εργαστηρίου είχε ένα παλιό μας ζιζάνιο, η Αναστασία Δρακοπούλου.

Το υβριδικό αυτό κινηματογραφικό εργαστήριο διοργανώθηκε από το Σουηδικό Εκπαιδευτικό Κέντρο VBU σε συνεργασία με 4 φεστιβάλ – μέλη του YOUTH CINEMA NETWORΚ. Την Camera Zizanio (Ελλάδα), το Fresh Film Festival (Ιρλανδία), το FiSH – Festival im StadtHafen (Γερμανία) και το Four River Film Festival (Croatia).

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.

Thanasis Koutrafouris

  • 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.
