John Boorman΄s latest film, Queen and Qountry will be opening this evening the 27th Panorama of European Cinema in Athens, a 14-days cinematic journey into recent and older European productions, tributes to Greek and international filmmakers and more. 

Like every year, Panorama Film Festival focuses on European cinema. In the well-established Competition Section, -first screening in Greece- European films will be shown, like Larry Clark΄s The Smell of Us and Asia Argento΄s Incompresa. The award for the Competition Section will be given by a three-member committee composed by members of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI). The Audience Award will be given by a five-member committee.

The Smell of Us by Larry Clark

The 27th Panorama has prepared a special tribute of the Anticomformists of Greek Cinema, screening 11 films from the late 60΄s and the 70΄s, a transitional era for Greek films, where the new filmmakers experimented with new narrative techniques, influenced by the world trends. Films from Pavlos Tassios, Dimos Theos, Takis Kanellopoulos, Nikos Nikolaidis and other renowned filmmakers.

100 years since the start of WWI, the festival, like many other European festivals this year, is hosting a Special Retrospective of 12 famous -and infamous- films concerning the subject (WWI, The war to end all wars). The program includes Charlie Chaplin΄s Shoulder Arms, Dalton Trumbo΄s Johnny Got His Gun, Jean Renoir΄s The Grand Illusion, Michael Haneke΄s The White Ribbon and Stanley Kubrick΄s Paths of Glory.

Until November 29, the audience will have the oppurtunity to watch never before seen international films and a special tribute from eight Greek film directors suggesting their favorite European film, a program of 19 short films, tributes to the master of French comedy, Pierre Etaix, and to Palestinian filmmaker Elia Suleiman, who will be attending the event.

On the Parralel Events Section, Panorama 2014 will host a debate with the topic "Crisis in Cinema - Cinema in Crisis", co-organized by the Greek Film Critics Association (PEKK) and FIPRESCI, and two masterclasses, the first from the award-winning actor and film director Elia Suleiman, and one by Ken Loach΄s screewriter, Paul Laverty.
