Our long-expected appointment with cinema
The anniversary edition of the Athens International Film Festival - Opening Nights is scheduled to take place September 17-28, featuring over 100 feature films from all over the world, three competition sections, special tributes, documentaries and more than 60 homegrown shorts. It's worth noting that Opening Nights is one of the few festivals in the world to feature a "Music & Film" competition section.
The official lineup will be accompanied by a series of sidebar events, including workshops, lectures and parties, as well as a few choice anniversary happenings in collaboration with the City of Athens Technopolis, that remain tightly under wraps.
