This year’s edition is all about women: Frances Ha by Noah Baumbach will open the festival, and La Vie d’Adele by Abdellatif Kechiche, which was awarded the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, will be screened at the closing ceremony. The two leads, Greta Gerwig and Adele Exarchopoulos, who will attend the screening, have created two singular and original characters, which will become touchstones for any similar stories in the future.
Once again, the Athens International Film Festival Opening Nights will highlight various aspects/genres of independent cinema introducing audiences to some of the best productions of the year. Don’t miss it!
|Dates: 18/09/2013 – 29/09/2013 Place: Athens. Venues: Danaos Cinema 1&2, ODEON Opera 1&2, Ideal, Greek Film Archive, Pallas Theatre.|
