A few words on EVIA FILM PROJECT:
EVIA FILM PROJECT makes part of the special rehabilitation and reconstruction program for Evia, following last summer’s devastating wild fires, planned and executed by the Ministry of Culture & Sports. EVIA FILM PROJECT, carried out thanks to the support of the Region of Central Greece, is aiming to transform Evia into an international pole of Green Cinema, offering the chance to filmmakers and producers from a worldwide scale to showcase their projects for the first time. EVIA FILM PROJECT is opening a third chapter in TIFF’s developmental actions, adding its name to the two existing and internationally acclaimed branches of Agora: Thessaloniki Film Festival Agora (November) and Agora Docs (March). New employment positions will be created, while Evia will turn into a film industry hub, attracting cinema professionals and distinguished guests from all over the world, who will deliver and host workshops, seminars and educational programs.
With our eyes set on consolidating EVIA FILM PROJECT as an Evia-based institution, Thessaloniki Film Festival is teaming up with Chalkida Documentary Festival, the Department of Digital Arts and Cinema of Psachna, the local administration, as well as all cultural institutions that have their seat in Evia.
