Life Lessons

One of the most important periods in our life journey, decisive as a tool for socializing and shaping personality, the transition through the levels of education, is a common place for the majority of people. The flms of this tribute look at the school, the university, their environment, their microcosm, but also at the broader picture of education – actual and metaphorical – through the cinema lens. Besides, cinema, in its own way, also constitutes a tool and a way for education.

“The tribute entitled "Life Lessons" is implemented by the Operational Program “Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning” and its co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund) and Greek National Funds.”

Free Admission
A zero value ticket is required for your admition to the screening.
