“Thessaloniki Goes to Cannes”: Project submissions are now open



The participation of TIFF’s Agora at the “Thessaloniki Goes to Cannes” is a collaboration between Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the Greek Film Centre with the Cannes Film Festival. Greece is the only country from Southeastern Europe and the Balkans that is involved in the project of Marché du Film of Festival de Cannes, one of the biggest and sought-after film markets in the world. Films that have previously participated have made significant contacts that have led to deals with sales agents and distributors from abroad. Among the successful films that have already been presented in the event are Apples by Christos Nikou, Winona by Alexandros Voulgaris, Defunct by Zacharias Mavroeidis, Dolphin Man by Lefteris Charitos, The Waiter by Steve Krikris, When Tomatoes Met Wagner by Marianna Economou, Polyxeni by Dora Masklavanou.


Five feature films in progress (fiction and documentary) will be presented to sales agents, distributors and programmers that will attend this year’s Cannes’ Marché du Film. The five selected producers will be granted accreditation from the Marché du Film. We are looking for either fiction or documentary films produced in Greece or co-produced in Greece, in the stage of post-production. The deadline for submissions is Monday, 14th March 2022.
