The poster of the 63rd Thessaloniki International Film Festival

The poster of the 63rd Thessaloniki Film Festival bears the signature of the acclaimed and beloved visual artist Dimitris Trimintzios (Taxis).

The concept behind the 63rd TIFF’s poster:

A female figure is floating above the city. She is the source of life and the core of our world, magnetizing and drawing everything that surrounds and defines us. The 63rd TIFF’s poster is renegotiating the representation of women, raising them to the status they have rightfully earned. As superheroines of the real everyday life that exceed and surmount the innumerable roles they have been assigned and attached to. Time has come for women to demand from each and one and from all of us as a whole to finally look at them through a fresh glance.
