The full program of the 10th Athens Open Air Film Festival

The Athens Open Air Film Festival, the most cherished film tradition which for a decade now is an integral part of the cultural experience of the citizens and visitors of the capital and is organized by the Athens International Film Festival, will be with you this summer too in collaboration with the City of Athens Cultural, Sport and Youth Organization.

The much-awaited summer film celebration is an alternative and disarmingly beautiful way to watch movies while at the same time looking at the town like you have never imagined it before.

The 10th Athens Open Air Film Festival invites you to enjoy beloved films from the contemporary and classic cinema while transforming emblematic locations in town, such as the City of Athens Technopolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the archaeological site of Plato's Academy Park and the courtyard of the Byzantine and Christian Museum to magical open-air cinemas, organizing a striking drive-in screening at Lycabettus Hill and scheduling screenings at open-air movie theaters, expressing for yet another year our full support.

All the screenings of the Athens Open Air Film Festival will be realized by securing in any case the most premium audiovisual experience and, of course, by rigorously complying with the measures for public health protection, as those arranged for the open-air movie theaters.  

Entrance is free to all screenings (read below the analytical instructions for admission).
