We are happy to announce that the Europa Cinemas Best Programming award goes to the four cinema screens of the Thessaloniki Film Festival: Olympion, Pavlos Zannas, John Cassavetes and Stavros Tornes. The award is an important recognition, especially at this time of unprecedented challenges faced by cinemas all over Europe.

The 23rd TDF will start on March 4, however its events and screenings will continue well into the summer of 2021.
