Athens International Film Festival

The poster of the 25th Athens International Film Festival

The Athens International Film Festival celebrates 25 years of cinematic history in Athens and returns for another year from 18 to 29 September 2019!

The Athens International Film Festival, along with its main sponsor COSMOTETV and with the support of cinemagazine.gr, celebrates 25 years of cinematic history in Athens and returns for another glamorous year with the most talked-about premieres, unique tributes, highly-anticipated music films, the best crop of the year’s documentaries as well as celebratory events such as masterclasses, concerts, parties, special  screenings and many more surprises.

It is with great pleasure that we present the poster of the 25th anniversary edition of our festival.

 

The poster of the 25th Athens International Film Festival was designed by Vassilis Mexis: a graduate with a first class Honours degree in Graphic Design from the AKTO School of Art and Design, he has long-standing work experience in advertising. He has worked on award-winning campaigns and has designed book and magazine covers in international circulation. Since 2016 he has been creating the posters for the Athens Open Air Film Festival and the Athens International Film Festival. 

In his own words:

“The poster commemorates the 25 years of the Athens International Film Festival by featuring a literal reflection of the numbers. The Festival celebrates, featuring the city taking the form of the celebratory number.  A game of reflection reminding us that film itself is rife with images to be interpreted in a manner of ways provided you change your perspective”.
