PROJETS EN COURS

Future Tenses

Feature film / Directed by Christos Karakepelis / Financing / Homemade Films (Greece), Sister Productions (France) / Budget: 409 000 € / Financing in place: 116 000 €

The sad systematization of Europe that causes asphyxiation and prophesizes poverty. The spectacular future vision of China that indoctrinates crowds of people in the dream and epically surges into the world. Two completely foreign languages compete within one port, whose workers are both their witnesses and prey: in Piraeus. And from there, a journey begins: in their lives, on earth, and in the lives of small, everyday people like them.

Faraway

Feature film /  Directed by Yorgos Zois / Financing / Homemade Films (Greece), Red Carpet (Bulgaria), Xova Films (Czech Republic) / Budget: 900 000 €/ Financing in place: 270 000 €

A struggling couple embarking on a banal summer holiday switches partners with a female acquaintance and a male stranger. Two parallel love stories emerge in a dream house by the sea that appears to be haunted.

Animal

Feature film / Directed by Sofia Exarhou / Development / Homemade Films (Greece) / Budget: 994 000 € / Financing in place: 20 000 €

A group of animateurs performs every night on the stage of Hotel Mirage, on the coast of a Greek island. As summer intensifies, the fiesta becomes fiercer, more daring. The nights turn violent, and the pop trance of flamboyance gives way to the rough void of yet another drunken extravaganza. A wild summer story is revealed in the darkness. But when the spotlights are on again, their show must go on.
