The Athens International Film Festival OPENING NIGHTS COSMOTE, was founded by the Athens Film Society (a Non-Profit Organisation) with the intention of highlighting lesser-known aspects/genres of independent cinema, introducing audiences to some of the best productions of the year and establishing itself as the ideal opening of the upcoming movie season. The Festival was launched in September 1995 and continues successfully until now.
According to a CINEMA magazine survey, the Festival audience roughly consists of 50.000 film-goers, who are interested in learning about the latest movie trends from all over the world and watching the most successful productions of the season before anyone else. Our goal is to present them with a handpicked selection of independent productions from all over the world.
The Festival's orientation to modern and groundbreaking cinema has attracted a dynamic and versatile audience.
According to surveys:
42% of our audience members are between 17-24 years old
55% are between 25-44 years old
64% are men and 36% are women
67% have received graduate or post graduate education
6% visit the city especially for the Festival.
