The 52nd Thessaloniki International Film Festival is taking place from November 4 to 13. "With its renewed outlook and a clear and purposeful direction towards independent cinema, the Festival invites both audience and filmmakers to this unique celebration."
Films from all over the world, cinematic surprises, distinguished guests, panel discussions and a plethora of parallel events, compose the 10-day-long event, transforming the city of Thessaloniki into a place of discovery, a youthful beehive thriving on art, life and fruitful interaction, revolving around the seventh art and the world of cinema. Alexander Payne’s The Descendants will be screened on the opening night and the Festival will close with Sean Durkin’s film Martha Marcy May Marlene.
