Sections: 2 Narrate or Not

Home  /  Program  /  Sections: 2 Narrate or Not

The 7th Athens Avant-Garde Film Festival introduces a new, competitive section, “2Narrate or Not”. As always, the quality of the film programming remains at the core of our cinephile presence. This diverse program comprises nine films which invite us to either follow their narrative thread or to enjoy them as audiovisual experiences.

In these hard times, we are very lucky to have as our partner company Authorwave, who was kind enough to offer a very generous award to the film that will be chosen by the jury. The director of the winning film will receive free post-production services for her or his next film. And of course, it will be a great pleasure for us to screen this film in a future edition of the Athens Avant-Garde Film Festival.

The films of this program were selected from an anthropological point of view, with an eye always on people, either close up (family life, relationships) or in a panning shot (public spaces, work environments). We hope the discourse between the films and the audience will go on for a long time.
