Pride and Prejudice: Southern European Filmmakers Report

with Thanos Anastopoulos, Salomé Lamas, Elina Psykou

All eyes having been on Southern Europe this past year, and discussions have been influenced by finger-pointing, prejudices and one-dimensional judgements. Featuring a new and energetic generation of Greek and Portuguese filmmakers all telling strong stories influenced by the economical crisis, this panel gives an insider's view on the current state of the Southern European film industry, and also discusses the effect of emerging talents leaving Southern Europe, how cinema reflects and influences political debates, and what opportunities are available for filmmakers to join forces, strengthen collaboration and fight stereotypes. In cooperation with Berlinale Forum.
