MPArt.OS 2023 – official selection

MPArt.OS 2023 – official selection

The Mill of Performing Arts On Screen (MPArt.OS) is one of the most innovative and successful bets of MPArt. It was launched on a trial basis 3 years ago and managed to become one of the festival’s favourite sections, directly connecting the performing arts with the film and video arts, as well as the audience of Larissa with the whole world.

This year, the open call for short films for the performing arts had an unexpected and unprecedented response, gathering 163 proposals from 34 countries from all over the world, with high quality projects that made it very difficult for our committee to select only 30 among them.

As of today the films are being collected and very soon the screening schedule will be announced, as well as the movies selected to compete for this year’s editors and audience awards.
