1 September 2015
share info
In the frame of its on-going collaborations with film festivals and cultural events throughout Greece, such as the Shedding light to the Balkans program at the Olympus Festival that took place last August, altcine joins forces with Athens΄ Ionic Festival, a 40-days event of concerts and theatrical plays, organised by the Cultural Organisation of the Municipality of Nea Smyrni district. For the first time this year, Ionic Festival is launching a wide selection of Balkan open-air screenings under the Nea Smyrni΄s night sky. 

The Death of Mr. Lazarescu by Cristi Puiu

The Greek audience will have the opportunity to discover filmic treasures from established directors, as well as young and upcoming filmmakers from countries of common cultural identity such as Albania, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, Kosovo*, Greece, Turkey Bulgaria, FYROM and Romania, that have throughout the years produced films filled with truths, myths, entertainment and humor.

We hope that this is the beginning of a long-term collaboration, that will further promote the region΄s cinema to a wider Greek audience, serving as an introspective of our common filmic heritage.  

The selection, curated by altcine, includes five acclaimed Balkan feature films, as well as a number of shorts divided in five different programs.
