Vision

Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much!
The aim of FilmMaker Global is to establish a strong and diverse international community of professional Videographers, Filmmakers, Photographers and Visual Artists sharing the vision of creativity and innovation. A community transcending borders, where everyone can exchange knowledge, experiences and assist each other, in order to grow both individually and as a sector.

Our International Conference for Videographers focuses mainly on the Modern trends of Wedding Filmmaking. However, nowadays there is a very thin line between the modern storytelling wedding videography and commercial / cinematic film productions. Therefore, our vision is to broaden the horizon of Wedding Videographers by bringing together some of the most distinctive and innovative professionals of their respective fields.

Our panels include speakers from the wedding filmmaking industry, but also commercial film directors, Photographers, Professionals of the Film Industry etc.

Join the Filmmaker Global Community to shape the future of videography together and to celebrate the art of storytelling through film. Are you ready?

What is Filmmaker Global?

It is located in the center of Athens close to the main city attractions. The closest metro station is Syngrou-Fix.

Who can attend the Conference?

The conference is open to videographers, filmmakers, both amateur and professional, and anyone interested in the world of videography. It's an inclusive event designed to inspire and educate. Speakers of the first edition are mostly professionals of the wedding videography industry, so it can be of interest for wedding videographers, but also other filmmakers or aspiring filmmakers could benefit from attending the conference.

What does the price include?

The Conference ticket includes all the presentations from the Speakers. By contrast, the screenings, judging and award ceremony of the film festival are open to the public. All attendees have to take care of their own transport, meals and accommodation during the Conference.

I only want to attend one day of the conference, is that possible?

The Conference is intended to provide an experience as a whole and to be a first step into building an international community, so it will not be split into modules. We suggest that you attend all the presentations of the speakers.

What is the Filmmaker Global Festival?

It is a parallel event that is open to everyone. Even if you are not attending the Conference, you can submit your work and enter the Film Festival for the possibility to have your film screened and win an award.
Our experts will examine closely all the works submitted and announce a first shortlist of the Official Selections. All Finalists-Official Selections will be screened and judged anonymously by the Festival Jury. Winners of the Festival will be awarded during the last day of the Conference. Finalists are welcome to join us in Athens to attend the screening and award ceremony in person. More details on the Rules of the Film Festival can be found on the dedicated page of the website.
