The audience of the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival (October 31st until November 10th 2019) will enjoy a John Waters three-day experience. The daring director and iconic representative of cult cinema will be in Thessaloniki from the 6th until the 8th of November 2019 and it is with great pleasure that TIFF will present him with the Golden Alexander award for his contribution to cinema.
The Overview Effect, an experience that can shake human intellect to its core, is the prism through which the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival (October 31st until November 10th 2019) views the 14 films of the International Competition.
TIFF stands alongside Mohammad Rasoulof
Thessaloniki International Film Festival expresses its strong protest for the Iranian Court’s decision to sentence director Mohammad Rasoulof to 1 year in prison and a 2-year ban on leaving Iran and getting involved in any social or political activity and asks for his immediate release.
The unjust sentence of the Iranian filmmaker is a direct attack to the freedom of speech and creation that constitutes a basic human right.
We stand by his side.
Here is the petition to free Mohammad Rasoulof:
Once a misunderstood decade, the 80s come back at Thessaloniki from October 31st to November 10th 2019. The 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival asked the Greek director and musician The Boy (Alexandros Voulgaris) to dive into the 80s and pick ten films full of horror, tenderness, humor and music.
We are happy to inform you that the 60th anniversary Thessaloniki International Film Festival presents a big exhibition dedicated to the artistic work of Greek director Nikos Koundouros. The opening will take place during the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival (October 31st until November 10th 2019) in a space specifically modified for the exhibition in the Pier A of the Port of Thessaloniki.
