ÉCU-On-The-Road continues its World-wide tour with a screening in Athens.
ÉCU – The European Independent Film Festival will be screening a selection of some of the best independent films from around the World in Athens, Greece from the 30th August to the 1st September, 2017. The screenings will take place at the XYTHPIO Theatre Art Café in the Gazi area of Athens and will start at 20.45 every night from Wednesday until Friday and will go until almost midnight.
The films will be an eclectic and entertaining mix of short, animation, feature, student and experimental films. The 27 films come from 16 countries with several of them being award-winning films. A highlight will be the excellent independent films from Greece (BACK ON MY FEET, a music video directed by Theo Papadoulakis and animated film DRAG ME by Nikos Kellis). ÉCU will also screen the Europe’s Best Independent Film 2017, CUBS, directed by Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir.
“We are proud and honoured to return to Athens with ÉCU-On-The-Road,” says Scott Hillier, ÉCU’s Président. “Greek Indie filmmakers have been great ÉCU supporters over the last 12 years with many Greek films having won awards at ÉCU. They have brought fantastic films to our festival in Paris and impressed and wowed our audiences. We hope to do the same to our Greek friends with this screening!
