Athens Open Air Film Festival
WHAT: Few capitals do summer as Athens does, with over 60 open-air summer cinemas promising drama, romance, high-jinx action, and rip-roaring comedy. Timeless classics, indie gems and blockbusters are screened under the starry Athenian sky at iconic landmarks such as museums, squares, gardens, and archaeological parks. The philosophy of the open-air film festival, which began in the summer of 2011, is to highlight some of Athens’ most emblematic monuments, squares, gardens and other historic open-air cinemas, using them as backdrops for film classics. Relive legendary cinematic moments watching the masters: Almodovar, Hitchcock, Leone, Fellini and Godard amongst others as they come alive on the big screen.
WHEN: Until August 18
WHERE: Please refer to the festival’s website for the full programme of screenings: aoaff.gr
