Celebrating Unique Voices of the World: At its heart, art is about celebrating the unique voice and message that we each possess. Sometimes loud, often quiet, occasionally bold and brash, and perhaps even shy, that singular voice should speak to others and by doing so, help them to better see themselves.
That's why the Athens Documentary Film Festival is open to filmmakers from any culture, language, gender, sexual orientation, and any background.
The Athens Documentary Film Festival's ambition is demonstrating the full spectrum of human experience through the medium of film.
As a film festival designed to support filmmakers regardless of their budgets, this underground festival celebrates the best of contemporary independent documentary filmmaking. Its works bridge a wide variety of sub-genre - expository, experimental, poetic, essay, observational, dramatized, animated, based on interviews - documentary films.
Towards a vibrant future: Once upon a time the beating heart of Ancient Greece, Athens is a city with a rich artistic history. But it is also a capital that, after battling political and financial turmoil for years, is now experiencing a true cultural renaissance. Rumbling with raw energy, Athens' rising arts scene is giving birth to sprawling creative hubs all throughout the city. The Athens Documentary Film Festival aims to honor this by creating a space for new indie film talent.
