From September 14-25, film enthusiasts will be delighted by the events of the 17th Annual Athens International Film Festival 'Opening Nights'. Founded in 1995 by the Athens Film Society, this festival was created to showcase independent films and films that may not attract mainstream attention.
This year, the 'Opening Nights' program will feature documentaries, midnight screenings, premiers of large-budget movies set to come out later in the year, and two competition sections. The two categories of the competition section are the International Competition and the Film and Music Competition. Five tributes and retrospectives will also complement this year's program, including a tribute to Japanese director Yasuzo Masamura and a retrospective with focus on Norway.
