Ready for the 4th edition?

17 Nov

DSC_7836m It has been already three years since The mythos project started appearing on the web, when its blog was first launched on 17th November 2011.

Today, as we are preparing for the project’s 4th edition, we felt like summarising what we have achieved so far.

Using numbers, more than 30 short films have been produced as a part of the Mythos project and almost 200 people have participated in it or contributed anyhow. Without these people’s support nothing would be the same.

Today, carrying all the experience we have gained, full of energy, enthusiasm and love for cinema, we are looking forward for our 4th edition to start in two weeks and invite all of our friends, old and new, to join this creative meeting.

This year, we are focusing on immigration, a timeless situation and a phenomenon highly rising at societies during periods of extended and established crisis. Does this remind you of anything?

A series of videos on this year’s topic will follow the next days until our new participants actually meet and working in groups tell us what they think through their films.

Stay tuned! 2week left…


3rd edition: οι ταινίες, the films

11 Dec

Κάθε χρόνο τα συναισθήματα μετά το τέλος του Διεθνούς Φεστιβάλ Κινηματογράφου Ολυμπίας για παιδιά και νέους και της Camera Zizanio (ή απλώς του δικού μας φεστιβάλ) είναι το ίδιο νοσταλγικά για όσα ζήσαμε, για όση γνώση και εμπειρίες αποκτήσαμε, για όσους ανθρώπους γνωρίσαμε και όσα μάθαμε από αυτούς. Αυτό που μένει πέρα από τις αναμνήσεις μας είναι οι ταινίες που γυρίστηκαν στο πλαίσιο των κινηματογραφικών εργαστηρίων σαν κίνητρο για να συνεχίσουμε να συναντιόμαστε, να ονειρευόμαστε και να δημιουργούμε μαζί. Ευχαριστούμε όλους όσοι συμμετείχαν φέτος στο the mythos project (για να μη μιλήσουμε με αριθμούς 65 μαθητές και καθηγητές από 7 χώρες), αλλά κυρίως όλους όσους έζησαν την κάθε στιγμή της εβδομάδας που πέρασε και ανυπομονούν για τις επόμενες που θα έρθουν. Και του χρόνου! :)

Every year after Olympia International Film Festival finishes, we all feel nostalgic for everything we have been through, all the knowledge and experience we gained and basically for all the people we met and everything they taught us. May the films be our motivation to continue dreaming and creating together. We would like to thank all the people who participated in the Mythos project this year, made the most of every single moment of the past week and are looking forward to the next to come. See you next year! :)


it’s shooting time…

let’s get inspired

3 Dec

This year we thought of giving to the participants an extra source of inspiration, so that they get a better idea on recent facts as well. For this reason, we chose the following photos, showed them to our young audience and invited them to get inspired and let their spirits free to create. The first step has been made. Now they are working and we are looking forward to the results…

3rd edition is a matter of fact

First day of the participants meeting each other, being divided into groups and starting brainstorming…
