The new edition of the CineDoc Festival runs in Athens and an additional four Greek cities (Thessaloniki, Patras, Volos, Kalamata Amaliada), presenting 2 new films every month: one documentary and one fiction film for children and teens.
The year-round festival opens with the screening of ‘Push’, Fredrik Gertten’s new film about the international real estate market which is transforming our cities. Other films screened include ‘The Wandering Chef’, Hye-Ryoung Park’s deep homage to Mother Nature through the heart-warming culinary journey of Korean chef Jiho Im, Steven Wouterlood’s ‘My Extraordinary Summer With Tess’, a family-friendly drama that explores the relationship between a boy preparing for the worst with a girl who helps him find his best and ‘Cielo’, an experimental feature by Alison McAlpine, using science and poetry to portray the night sky above the Atacama Desert in Chile
Established in 2009, CineDoc organises regular screenings of award-winning European and international documentary films. Screening across Greece, CineDoc selects films relevant to our contemporary lives, as a catalyst for discussion, inspiration and impact. Special attention is given to films promoting inter-cultural understanding, sustainable living and human rights. In parallel, CineDoc Kids brings international films for children and teens to the Greek audience.
CineDoc is also founding member of the 2015 initiative MOVING DOCS which organizes pan-European documentary screenings and campaigns, in collaboration with EDN and more than 20 partners across Europe.
