• An audience in one of the Athena’s downstairs theaters takes in a show at the 40th Athens International Film and Video.

The Athena Cinema has been “home base” for the Film Festival since its founding in 1974; each spring the Athena hosts the Festival and over 250 films and videos that comprise a global mix of genres, styles and approaches to filmmaking. The 2017 film fest is almost here, so be sure to join us!
