Film synopsis:
Saint Nicholas is a former bourgeois neighborhood in Athens, marked by several waves of immigration. Loukianos (a young man coming from this bourgeoisie) hires Andy (his Albanian neighbor and an astute connoisseur of the area) to rebuild his basement apartment. Τhe renovation works become an endless game that eventually brings them closer. Over time, they start sharing an odd complicity.

Loukianos Moshonas - Filmography:
Loukianos Moshonas was born in 1985 in Athens and raised there. He is half-Greek, half-French. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and Paris, before attending the Famu film school in Prague. In 2009 he attended the Fresnoy Studio National des Arts Contemporains in Lille.

2013 - Nevers - directed by Emilie Lamoine, 70’ Projects : His Wing, Indubitable within Me, - directed by Loukianos Moshomas feature fiction (writing) Torino Film Lab - Script and Pitch 2009

Producer´s Statement:
Saint Nicholas is simultaneously in writing, shooting and editing. It started out as a self-produced documentary, and, throughout two intense shootings, the film slid towards an actual work of fiction. Now we want to go the extra mile, without losing the raw flavor of the images and the project as a whole With the material we currently have, Loukianos is able to write new scenes and to revamp existing ones. Hence, we plan to carry out a third shooting in the Fall to push the film further. For post production, we are either looking for industrial support and/or funding. Finally, we want the distribution strategy to be alive, as is the film’s nature: rooted in Greece and travelling abroad.

Producer´s Statement:
We have almost final cut, open to all postproduction support. The whole budhet is around 650 000 euro. We are aiming to premiere in Venice IFF. We want to show sentimental, funny and often strange life and smile about it. Smile, but not to ridicule. It helps us to get closer to the characters, to identify with them, to understand and accept their problems. The positive, warm tone of the film is important. In Georgia, despite of all the wars, misery and constant political and social problems, the people are warm. We’ve experienced this reality and want to share this. We think making such film is important as in our pragmatic and often cold times "warmth” of human relationships helps.

Daire / Circle

Directed by:Atil Inac
Turkey, 105 min

Film is in postproduction
Film language:Turkish
Film´s website:dairefilm.com
Genre:Drama

Film synopsis:
In the hard-boiled world, where will the soft-shelled end up? A cozy kind of extermination is on the stage and keeping a low profile. The decadence around us is nothing less than clandestine annihilation of the civil man. Circle is a peculiar story of an ordinary man caught between an untimely romance and brave new hostile world in which hopelessness, submission, courage become existential methods. Tragicomic story of three people Feramus, Betül and Arif who conjure up interesting solutions to the extraordinary situations and obstacles generated by the turn of the social wheel is set in a brand new yet unused airport which is an allegory for a dysfunctional sociopolitical system.

Atil Inac - Filmography:
As a seasoned bilingual Turkish/English director and writer, Atil has established a reputation as a multi talented story teller balancing projects in Los Angeles, Istanbul and the Middle East. He recently accepted 2010 Best Film Awards for Buyuk Oyun in several world film festival in USA [A Step into The Darkness] which had its world premiere at the Montreal Film Festival, Inaç’s second feature film shot in Iraq and Southeast Turkey in 2009 and Took part at programs/official selections of 20 IFFs.

As the executive producer of "A Step Into the Darkness” which had its world premiere at the Montreal Film Festival and took part at programs/official selections of 20 IFFs. "Circle” (2010 - ) Producer - Currently Post Production. WHEN EAST MEETS WEST 2012 in Italy, Trieste 2012 / Istanbul Film Festival – Meetings On The Bridge in 2011/EEFA Network Scholarship Program, Sofia, Kiev, Talin 2012. (Best Project Award) "Partner” (2010 -) Co Producer – Currently Post Production "A Step into the Darkness” (2009) Executive Producer.

Producer´s Statement:
"Circle” was written and shot in the forthcoming shadow of the current social outburst in Turkey. It is both cinematic and philosophical portrayal of the pains and selective sidelining of a particular class of people in the process of their uprooting. As for the distribution strategy, we are confident of a world premiere in one of the top Film Festivals after which we will push for a well coordinated festival exposure to promote and distribute "Circle”. We have credible and high expectations for "Circle” to apprehend the recognition that it deserves to be depicting the newborn veiled drama that is shaking and shaping the sprit of a region along with the hearts of masses.

Film synopsis:
We all carry dreams and secret wishes inside us. We know about some; some of them we’d like to suppress and some we allow to ourselves to be said out loud or even lived out. Heroes of our story will get a chance to wish
something and their lives will aim in those directions they have determined.
A chain of "accidents” will grant them what they’d wished and they get their chance to live it up. In our lives we are responsible not only for
everything we do but also for what we say, what we think and what we are
yearning for.
The greater part of our film takes place in a shopping mall during Christmas time. Stories of four friends who work there will intermingle.

1984. Zano arrives at the city for the first time. He is a vampire and a photophobic yet a fine dancer. Wasted and consumed he dances the night away in Athens, -a city that exists in no map-. And the only thing he needs is a "warm girl”. At disco Zardoz, an outlaw’s downtown joint, he will meet Alice, a prostitute and Peter, a Norwegian drug-dealer. He takes on this shady job with them and that leads him to Mount Parnitha. To the kingdom of Mathousalas, inside the earth’s core.
Norway is a battle between good and bad taste, between the cheap and the precious. Norway wears shiny shoes, dances among colorful scum and bites only when she chooses to. "Norway comes down to the Mediterranean”.

Film synopsis:
The film’s main theme is obsession. An obsession with love, with art,
with originality, with copying, with success, with money and…with
oneself. Sooner or later every obsession leads us to ruin if we lose our
rational upper hand over it, if we let ourselves be dragged down by it.
But it is only when being dragged down, in spite of all the cuts and
bruises, that we find a unique DELIGHT, if only for a few short moments
– and what else is life really about?

A jurney into the mind of an unfortunate man.
Julius Schmitke, not a spring chicken anymore but not as old as he feels, always has a little rainy cloud just above his head. He’s an unfortunate man. But in Schmitkes life there is also something lurking behind the bushes. Some mysterious growling of a bear from the subconscious, from the woods. He’s sent to the Czech-German border to the Ore Mountains to repair a similarly unfortunate old windmill. And things start to get strange. Very very strange.

Film was recently shot and is now in postproduction. After completion of the film is our goal to be accepted to A-category festivals. Our film still has no distributor or TV station, so we are oppen to find partners . Main reason to the film is to become immortal with making a good film, which stays forever and also to deal with subjects that are pain for the recent society and for ourselves as well. Good ilustration is the comment of the director: "story of an aging man who, because of his antipathy and inability to take part in today’s ultra-fast virtual world, brings Chekhov to mind in his personification of the fear and desire that is typical of our age"

Producer´s Statement:
Social inequality is somewhere gathering its pace. Other acute issues are hidden behind that inequality such as the conflict of traditional culture (rural) and urban (municipal). The plot sheds light upon this very issue – where deprived citizens face the interest of a local community, which acknowledges nothing but the ties of kinship and ancient patriarchal laws. It is not only relevance that attracts me in this project (the existing despotism and iniquity sometimes look just like grotesque absurd) but the philosophic background of the whole story is of greater significance – in fact, this is a fable about the struggle for the house of one’s own.

Film synopsis:
"If bees disappeared from the surface of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live." Albert Einstein

Zero is a film about globalisation telling, with overstatement and style, a provocative story of a man fighting to save his bees with everything at his disposal. A young man in his thirties turns his life around by becoming a forest beekeeper after having managed an artificial honey factory. But his bees are chased away and killed by the proximity of mobile telephone relay antennas. He launches a campaign to protect the environment, in which his actions become increasingly radical and publicised. But even this struggle could become a type of component of the establishment...
