Evia Film Project, Thessaloniki International Film Festival’s green action, kicked off last year, with the aim of offering support to the region of Northern Evia, following the 2021 calamitous wildfires. Evia Film Project’s first edition attracted more than 350 film industry professionals, producers, directors, and journalists from all around the globe, who discovered Evia’s beauties and attended awareness-raising activities on sustainability (environmental footprint, recycling etc.), receiving valuable information on the optimal practices of green cinema that are rapidly gaining ground on a worldwide scale.
This year, the renewed second edition of Evia Film Project is consolidating its place as the third pillar of Thessaloniki International Film Festival. The 2nd Evia Film Project invites us to Northern Evia, featuring a program of films, educational activities, open discussions, music events and a surplus of summertime feelgood mood. From 20 to 24 June 2023, with the support of the Ministry of Culture Sports, Evia Film Project will be held in Edipsos, Limni and Agia Anna, hosting a series of free-admission events.
Τhe 2nd Evia Film Project will be deployed in eight axes:
Evia Film Project is the Festival’s third pillar of activities, adding its name to Thessaloniki International Film Festival, held in November, and Thessaloniki International Documentary Festival, held in March. Its goal is to consolidate Northern Evia, a region severely hit by the 2021 calamitous wildfires, as an international hub of green cinema.
Evia Film Project is carried out thanks to the support of the Ministry of Culture and Sports and in collaboration with the Region of Central Greece, the Greek Film Centre, the Municipality of Istiea-Edipsos and the Municipality of Mantoudi-Limni-Agia Anna. Thessaloniki Film Festival is teaming up with all institutions and bodies seated in Evia and the Digital Arts and Cinema Department of the National and Kapodistrian University, based in Psachna.
