A Short History /
The Short Film Festival In Drama was first held in 1978, on the initiative of the Drama Film Club. The response of filmmakers, as well as the public, was enthusiastic from the very beginning. A few years later, the Festival was adopted by the Municipality of Drama and then, in the mid-eighties by the Greek State.
In recent years, the Festival in Drama has established itself not only within the world of cinema, but also among the public, as a showcase for short films.
