The Athens International Film Festival and cinemagazine.gr are putting together a cinematic event that aims to link the life in the city with the art of cinema. Special spots at archaeological sites, parks, squares, beaches, museums and other places around the city are set to turn into open-air cinemas with free entrance for everyone!
The Athens Open Air Film Festival organizes outdoor events against the backdrop of the most distinctive monuments of Athens, touristic destinations as well as more unexpected locations, which showcase the urban landscape (squares, parks, pedestrian areas) for its residents as well as its visitors. Central areas of the city are transformed in order to host film screenings, concerts, premieres of short films and many more interactive events, as always free of charge for everyone.
I have been covering the festival for 4 years now alongside photographers Nikolas Katsaros and Ioannis Stefanidis.
