On Friday 12 November, at Makedonikon cinema, the film My American Uncle by Alain Resnais was screened, as part of the carte blanche given by the 62nd Thessaloniki IFF to Yorgos Mavropsaridis, distinguished guest of the tribute “In the Cut: Editing and its Secrets” hosted by the 62nd TIFF. Yorgos Mavropsaridis raised the curtain of the event by saying the following: “I would like to explain the influence this film had on me. I watched it in 1980, at Pallas cinema in Athens. The reason I chose it is because I immediately connected it with the editing process that refers to the present of the viewer who watches the screen, in the sense that we create the present in our own mind”.
It was a Festival different than the others. The 62nd Thessaloniki Film Festival returned, after two difficult years, to the movie theaters, its natural turf, where cinema breathes and lives, where we all of us discover the next movies that will become the benchmarks of our life.
The Best Feature Film Award – Golden Alexander “Theo Angelopoulos” of the 62nd Thessaloniki International Film Festival is bestowed to the film "Softie" by Samuel Theis. Click here for all the awards.
