When our friends have the opportunity to make their wish come true, then in the Greek Forum of Refugees we are all happy. When, in fact, they are awarded for the result, we are thrilled…

On November 27, 2021, as part of the 12th Ethnographic Film Festival hosted at the “Astor” cinema in the heart of Athens, documentaries and short films from around the world were presented. Documentaries and films that record and highlight the human experience in all its forms.

Such an event could not miss our talented friends, who participated in the short film, “Nilo”.
