23rd Athens International Film Festival | 20/09/2017 - 01/10/2017
The city of Athens' beloved autumn film date will take place from the 20th September to the 1st October at the usual cinemas Danaos 1& 2, Odeon Opera 1 & 2, Ideal as well as the Onassis Cultural Center and the Athens Concert Hall. The programme contains 108 full feature films, 57 short films and 3 competitive sections.
The Athens International Film Festival Opening Nights, was founded by the Athens Film Society (a Non-Profit Organization) 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.
According to a CINEMA magazine survey, the Festival audience roughly consists of 60.000 film-goers, who are interested in learning about the latest movie trends from all over the world and watching the most successful productions of the season before anyone else. Our goal is to present them with a handpicked selection of independent productions from all over the world.
