The Francophone Film Festival of Greece has been an annual celebration of French-speaking screenings, inspiring talks, and indie cinema masterpieces since its very start in 2000.
Occurring during the months of March and April, the Francophone Film Festival of Greece features a wide array of movies split into three competition sections. Through the years, there have been countless film screenings, such as Le fils de Jean, Un Amour Impossible, Amin, De Gaulle and Boîte Noire. Plus, the category winners receive various prizes every year.
Furthermore, the Francophone Film Festival includes visits and talks from famous cinema critics, film directors, and actors (like Emmanuelle Béart, Rémi Bezançon and Florence Miailhe), as well as free-entrance masterclasses and film workshops.
The festival is mainly hosted in various cinemas and theaters in Athens and Thessaloniki, though, in recent times, there have been screenings and talks in other cities and towns around Greece, like Rhodes and Volos.
The 23rd annual Francophone Film Festival will take place in the cities of Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras, Larissa, Heraklion and Chania, from the 21st of March up until the 29th.
