The festival is a production by Moving Silence platform and the
Goethe-Institut Athen in collaboration with Beton7.

The program is curated by Matthias Fritsch & the Goethe-Institut.
The Musicians are selected by Nektarios Pappas.
A special thank goes to Sofia Michaelidou!

Moving Silence was originally founded in summer 2009 by the musician Marco Brosolo and the filmmaker Matthias Fritsch with the aim to create events that connect the roots of cinematography to the present aesthetics of image, the live music production and the potential of new technology. From late 2009 the team was joined by Anastasia_X as producer, event coordinator and performer. Moving Silence wishes to constitute a poetic, intercultural and collaborative attempt in times of information overload. It embraces experimentation and merging between contemporary forms of visual and sound by inviting artists from different parts of the world to join in. Moving Silence events have taken place in different cities around and outside Europe.
