The 9th Syros International Film Festival’s slate of summer activities begins with a two-day screening program celebrating the collaboration between SIFF and the Cimatheque - Alternative Film Centre in Cairo in the context of Peripheral Vision, an extended hybrid online and on-site workshop for cross-media interpretive strategies for audiovisual archives moderated by filmmaker and Cairo Cimatheque co-founder Tamer El Said, and held with the support of the Goethe-Institut Athen.
The screenings will be held on July 13 & 14 at the atrium of the Goethe-Institut Athen (Omirou 14-16).
On Tuesday, July 13, a selection of four films created by current workshop participants will be screened, touching on the themes of memory, history and locality that have been addressed throughout the workshop itself: Joshua Olsthoorn’s The 5th School (2020), Giannis Delagrammatikas and Ino Varvaritis’s The Willingness to Revisit (2020), Theofanis Dalezios’s Self Portrait (2013), and Alex Morelli’s The Island Man (2018).
The screening will be followed by a brief Q&A with filmmakers in attendance.
The following day, Wednesday, July 14, a program selected by the Cairo Cimatheque includes short films produced by filmmakers in the past decade in the context of filmmaking workshops held by the Cimatheque and various partners, including the High Film Institute and Atelier Varan: Ahmed Abu el Fadl’s Cairo from 5 to 7 (2013), Muhammad Mustapha’s Tashkeel (2015), Ahmed Elghoniemi’s Bahari (2011) and Maged Nader’s Fathy Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (2016).
