On the 1st of April, the 4th Be there! and its 12 best animation films welcome the 5th Be there!, inaugurating the events for 2015, just six months before the next Festival (15-18 October 2015).
Twelve awarded films from Be there! 4th edition will be screened. Among them, there will be the film about sign language and communication “Le sens du toucher” (The Sense of Touch, France/Switzerland, 2014) by Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo that won the festival’s Grand Prize as well as the student film “Black Canuck” by Rebecca Ancher (Un. Kingdom, 2014) that won the best student film award. There will be also a police thriller and short films from Italy, Canada, Mexico, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary and Singapore.
Two Greek films own a special place:
-The award winning film “Dinner for few” by Nasos Vakalis, winner of Be there! 4 jury awards that talks in a very penetrating way about the Greek financial crises and
-The puppet film “My Stuffed Granny” by Efi Pappa that won the Best Greek Student Film of Be there! 4 and deals with the survival problems of a Greek family, with humour and tenderness.
Efi Pappa is also the director of an animation film that is prepared by Be there!
