ESD students and alumni praised on their excellent work subtitling forty films for the Thessaloniki International Short Film Festival

The English Studies Department of CITY College, University of York Europe Campus has successfully completed its collaboration with the Thessaloniki International Short Film Festival. Current students and alumni of our MA in Translation and Interpreting completed an internship subtitling forty films which featured in the TiSFF 2021 and did a praiseworthy, professional job! Under the supervision of Dr Kelly Pasmatzi, Assistant Professor at the English Studies Department, our current and former students were able to practise and sharpen some of the skills they acquired through the ESD MA in Translation and Interpreting programme within the context of one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. We would like to congratulate all of them for pushing their limits, delivering professional results, being open to experimentation and having excelling team-working skills and know-how. Michaella Gerogioka, Theofilos Gkarmpounis, Maria Liakatou, Stella Papachristou, Antonia Theodoridou and Maria Varouta, congratulations for your outstanding work!

Dr Kelly Pasmatzi

Collaborating with the Thessaloniki International Short Film Festival and being able to offer our students and alumni the opportunity to participate in such a project was one of the most rewarding experiences CITY College has offered me. The experience was made all the more excellent because of the specific cohort of participants who were always so willing to take initiative and face challenges, serious about their work and stubbornly committed to learning and solving problems. Michaella, Maria, Theofile, Maria, Stella and Antonia, kudos on doing a fantastic job!”

What students who participated in the project said about their experience:

Michaella Gerogioka

“Subtitling for the Thessaloniki International Short Film Festival as part of my internship from the English Studies Department-CITY College, University of York Europe Campus was an awesome experience! Despite encountering some challenges, I enjoyed the whole procedure immensely! What I found mesmerising was the fact that not only could I watch the film since I am a cinephile but also practise and enhance my translation skills. I would like to thank Dr. Pasmatzi for all her guidance and support and CITY College for providing us this unique opportunity.”
