21st Athens International Film Festival
The 21st Athens International Film Festival- Opening Nights is scheduled to take place September 23- October 4, featuring over 100 feature films from all over the world, two competition sections, special tributes, documentaries and more than 60 greek short films.
It's worth noting that Opening Nights is one of the few festivals in the world to feature a "Music & Film" competition section. Like every year the official lineup will be accompanied by a series of sidebar events, including workshops, lectures and parties.
The Athens International Film Festival Opening Nights, was founded by the Athens Film Society (a Non-Profit Organisation) with the intention of highlighting lesser-known aspects/genres of independent cinema, introducing audiences to some of the best productions of the year and establishing itself as the ideal opening of the upcoming movie season. The Festival was launched in September 1995 and continues successfully until now.
