The 61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival invites audiences and filmmakers to the celebration of global independent cinema from November 5 to November 15, 2020.
The Thessaloniki International Film Festival has taken on a global initiative for the protection of films and festivals in the new digital times, starting a plea for using geoblocking technology in online film festivals. The plea has already been signed by 18 big film festivals from all over the world.
The Thessaloniki International Film Festival has already begun planning for its 61st edition. The Festival’s team is in constant collaboration with the medical authorities, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the City of Thessaloniki and the Region of Central Macedonia, monitors the COVID-19 situation and is preparing for three scenarios.
We have the pleasure to announce the 5 Greek films (Works in Progress) that will participate in this year’s edition of the “Thessaloniki Goes to Cannes” event which will take place online on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, during the Marché du Film of Festival de Cannes (June 22-26, 2020).
On Wednesday, May 27th, the third and final open discussion within the framework of the 22nd Thessaloniki Documentary Festival —this time focusing on memes; was held with great success.
