A brief greeting from the Artistic Director of the Festival

Ninos-Fenek Mikelides:

"This year, Panorama of European Cinema, the only festival in Athens that is mostly dedicated to the recent -as well as older- achievements of European and Greek cinema, celebrates its 33rd anniversary. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year's Panorama will be held online, making the festival more accessible to a wider audience.
In these tough times for world cinema – with COVID-19 upending the global film industry, halting film production, and closing cinemas- this year, the festival places its focus on Greek cinema, which has always been, and continues to be, an essential part of its events. European cinema and special tributes are an integral part of this year's programme as well, staying consistent to our festival's artistic tendency and tradition. The full festival programme will be announced shortly, and we are sure it will attract your interest."
