The festival, which opened few days ago, will last until September. One of the main objectives is to "advertise" the various corners of the city’s centre and suburbs, given that it will be taking place in various public spaces such as parks and squares.
The festival consists of several cycles, including: a tribute to "Summer in Athens", with Greek films depicting everyday stories using the capital as a background or as a character itself; 6 short films set in Athens, commissioned by the Greek Film Center to 6 young directors; Greek short films that received distinctions at the Drama Short Film Festival and a selection of international cinema classics.
It also features lectures and masterclasses focusing on the interaction between urban landscapes with cinema and art in general.
The festival’s signature events are a series of screenings -poetic documentaries, silent films- accompanied by live music composed specially for each of them, by selected musicians.
